You need to do some research. Not a lot of folks on here who run that large a wheel...I couldn't tell you where to begin.
As for tire size, you can fit 33" tires under a simple leveling kit, with no rubbing. You'll want wheels with 4.5" bacspacing or less, to make sure the tires clear suspension components. You can fit 35" tires under a 2.5" lift, but the problem you'll run into, since you have a 3.8L Jeep, is that you're undergeared to begin with. So running 35" tires will suck on the freeway, unless you spend the ~$1500 or so it takes for a regear.
Here's a link from the JK Jeep section that might help you get started on finding wheels for your rig: Anyone w/ 18in or more rims please post pics
