Rim and tire size

I am looking at adding some tires and rims to my 99 wrangler. I have decided that a 3" suspension lift is all we want. What size tires will fit and look right? Also, what material rim (steel, aluminum, etc.) is best for everyday driving?

You should be able to go to 33" tires. Everything else is just a fashion question. Which means it's totally up to you.

33's on 15" rims will work just fine with a 3" suspenstion lift. both wheels are fine for everyday driving. the steel rims will cost you less but are heavier. the aluminum are lighter and, from what i'm told, will perform better off road

Aluminum chunks on rocks so I don't see how that could be better offroad.

I would say is you do any off road and will have some minor damage on the wheels go with steels. I used to have aluminum and paid to much and when I did some side damage on the trails I was pissed. When it comes to performance honestly I can not tell the difference between the two
