Newb Question about Rim Size

Hey all, just bought my first Jeep in January and am loving every minute of it. It's a 2009 JKU X and the dealer put BRAND NEW 285/70/17's on the stock rims. I love the look of my Nitto Grapplers and I want the all black rim look! I want to keep my brand new tires, but what size rim should I look for??? Are they 17x8 or 9 or what from the factory? I have installed one washer on the steer stop as it rubbed just a hair when turned all the way! Thanks All!~
