Opinions for a semi-newb

So I'm new here.I just bought a 18 JK Sport. I used to have a Rubicon, but sold it last year. I want some opinions on my goals for my rig. I have a pretty long commute, and this is my daily driver. I want it to be functional, but also fun, so I want to keep the lift, wheels, tires, etc reasonable. My thought process is doing the 1.5 leveling kits, with 33s, but this is where my question comes. I really like the look of the simple steel pro-comp/trailmaster wheels. I have been thinking 17in wheels, but have recently thought about possibly doing 15in, thinking it might give the smaller tires (in comparison to the 37s I have on my off road truck) a little bit more of an aggressive look. Are there downsides to 15in rims? Anybody got them and love them? Hate them? Just looking for some overall general input. Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings, I want honest opinion.

I did 15"s w35"s no, lift and flat flares on my '16 sport jku for about a year/20k miles. Honestly it started to wear on me, looks weird on the jku in my opinion, a 2 door would look better i think. Be prepared to get creative on wheel weight placement and possibly grinding the brake calipers a little, no biggie, you may get lucky and the 15's you picked clear without issue.
