I would check tire rack. You can look at specs for the tires including the sizes they offer. If they have one for 22's you'll see them.

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
