Dunno about all the year models, but if I remember correctly the 2012 trim levels would in general give you 16's with the ls, 17's with the lt, and 18's on the ltz. We have an lt and the 17's. There is no shortage of GOOD options in tires for the 17's and in what searching I have done do not seem to be quite as expensive as 18's. I have not compared pricing to the 16's, but can tell you the last set of pirelli p4 plus tires I put on our car were very inexpensive.
With all that being said, some of the reading I have done right here suggests that there are some potential possible issues with moving to smaller sized wheels and disc clearance. And there also may be some issues with rubbing with moving up in size. I do not know first hand though as we have kept with the factory wheels.
My 6 year constantly asks why. What adults can learn from 5 and 6 year olds, to listen with your ears and mind open. Hard to learn when you don't listen ......
