recommendations???

I've got a 2001 jeep wrang sport all stocked out and Im plaaning on getting some new wheels and tires. Im basically cluesless and in my attempt to do a little researching of my own Im having pretty bad luck...
what Im looking to get are black, soft 8-(4x4.5 bolt pattern of course)..
maybe some black rock series 997 . From what I've seen, theyr pretty popular and look pretty BA. Are there any cheaper, similar wheels that you can recommend or are those pretty strict(other then cragars)?--
Most important question is how big should I get them. I'd like them larger then stock but of course dont want them rubbin on my jeep--
and what tires should I buy. Im planning on taking a trip to the snow up in tahoe and eventually a trip to wyoming in the spring so durability and handling would be great.
---oh and pretty cheap. well basically getting the best for my buck.

I know Im pretty clueless in this area.. ha Im learning

Hey
craigers soft 8s are a good choice
8 inch is the rim size back space 3 1/2 or 3 3/4
these will work if you decide to go bigger
with a lift and 33s
under 50$ each nothing is cheaper

you can run 31s no problem
What size are you running now?
get a good A/T tire goodyear
google tires stores in your area
to see all your options

Idk about those tires for your jeep. They are a little extreme for driving all the way to wyoming and i dont think they will do good in tahoe. By the way, where do you live? I'm out in the east bay.

Are you sure those are the ones you want. I think on road you will be disappointed with the ride. Id say take your time searching for tires, your gonna have them along time.

Super Swampers aren´t very good on the road, especially in rain.
