Wheel help

Should I go 20s or 18s this time?


I have 18" eagle 197s. I actually like them, but i obviously need bigger tires since i put the 7" lift on. Im thinking about different wheels when i do this as well. I know im going to go with mud grapplers again, but cant decide on wheels. I know i want something similar to what i have. Black for sure. Kinda like the XD riots, Hoss and i came across these Helo wheels HE7915, which i havent seen on anything yet.
20s and 37s
or
18s and 37s?

My opinion these newer trucks need atleast 20's to look right. I would do 22's and 37's but thats just me. I could see why you would want to stay with 20's or less if your off road mudding alot.

I dont mind bigger wheels. The reason i have 18s no is because i have them on my JK also. i thought i could swap tires if i needed or wanted to.....Its also getting tricky to find tires for 18s. Everyone is going 22 and 24. Im not really into that..... 22s arent bad on a 37 or 38, but i prefer 20.... Also the wheels are so heavy. And yes id hate to spend money on 22s and bend one pulling my gooseneck loaded through a field
