New member needs advice

HI, and thanks invertchoas for the welcome....

I am NEW to the forum, but not to Jeeps...In the past I have had friends who owned Jeeps who could help me with questions... They have either sold their vehicle or moved away....I thought I could get along without advice...Uh Uh :-)

I hope my relationship with all of you on this forum will prove fruitful for all parties, even though i feel you guys know way more than i do.....

For now i have a couple of questions I am hoping some one can advise me on:

I ma looking to buy NEW shoes and have decided on either Dunlop Radial Mud Rover or Goodyear Wrangler Dura Trac, both in 33X12.50...being RETIRED I have a very crunched budget :-)

I am having trouble buying Rims for the tires because i do not understand the ratings or what I need...I do like the Crager Nomads (white)but there are so many to choose from. Also then Amazon says they will not fit my 2000 TJ even though they are made specifically for JEEP ?

Can anyone give me any feedback or help choose the proper rims?

Thanks for all the help,
