depends on what tire size you will be running.
17's will give you less sidewall, that will flex less, so will ride better on the street, and when (if) you air down, it could mean more potential damage to the wheel.
16's will give more sidewall on the tire, and potentially not as good of a ride on the street. more tire profile can potentially protect the wheel better while aired down.
17's look better, imo.
i would say if you are going with 35" tires or larger, get 17" wheels. if you are staying with stock-sized tires (32" or less) go with 16's if you think you will do much off-roading. if you will rarely go offroad, go with 17's for 32" tires or less.
now that i re-read that, i'm not sure it is of any help.
pick the one that looks the best to you. it's not really going to make a huge difference either way.
