I'm not sure the stock rim size but I know the bolt pattern is 5 on 4.5. Most people with no lift run 31's. shouldn't really run into a rubbing issue unless you get some serious flexing. The way you make it sound, you probably wont run into that.

15X8 or 15X10 is a good rim IMO. I think you could probably stick with your current rims. The 15" rim has a lot of tire options and if you're running a small tire like a 30" or 31" then they will much cheaper compared to say 33's or above.

Something that I have heard from my wife and daughter is when I was running 32x12.50x15's and they were "like steering 4 surfboards in the rain" their words. I have since gone to 31x10.50x15 and they have both mentioned the easier to drive in the rain qualities, also I have seen the MPG go up by 3 MPG.

^Yes, the wider the tire the more likely you are to hydroplane. I'm currently running 32X11.50X15 and I don't really have much of a problem in the rain. My father has a '97 TJ with 33X12.50's. He says all the time he is constantly spinning his tires in the rain, and his TJ has a 2.5 and struggles to pull it's self. That tells you what a difference 2 to 3 inches can make in control
