I went with 17's and I am happy with them. But we get snow here and Igenerally travel on crappy backroads, so I needed more sidewall for comfort.

The perceived "look" between 17's and 18's is dependent upon the wheel design. Wheels with spokes that extend to the edge of the wheel appear larger than those with a lip. I have seen 17's that appear larger than lipped 18's. Some stepped deep dishes actually "look" ALOT smaller than their size.
