Make sure you get em in a 5x5 bolt pattern. But since you're buying new ones, don't go with the horrid 6.25" backspacing that the stock wheels have. Get something with 4.5" bs, so if you decide to get bigger tires or a lift later on, you won't have to buy new rims all over again, or spacers.
In fact, you'd be much better off getting smaller rims (15's or 16's) and new tires @ the same time. The smaller rims and tires will save you a good bit of $$, plus they'll be lighter and give you a better contact patch.
Whatever you decide to do, read this thread to get a better understanding of wheels/tires on a stock JK:
