What minimum sidewall height is recommended for the occasional off-road trip? Will i have to stay away from larger (18's) wheels? I want 18's for looks, but i still want to roll in the dirtonce in a while....

Anyone know? thanks

Depends what you mean by offroad....If you mean the occasional gravel road that's otherwise rather flat, 18's shouldn't be a problem....your choice of tyres on the other hand, might be(ie if you go something along the lines of semi slicks).
If you mean holes that in certain parts of the world they refer to as craters, pebbles that are often called rocks and lips that when driven over can qualify you for the national ski jumping team.....you might want to consider something like 15"s(not to mention expensive suspension mods).....

The stocker 16's should hold up quite nicely in most conditions.
