Ahh, got it.
"Best fit" really doesn't come into play. Any wheel with a 5x5 bolt pattern and appropriate dimensions will fit as well as any other. The only variable I'm aware of in that regard is whether the wheel is also "hub centric." I'd expect the Mopar ones will be as are the JK wheels produced by AEV, but I don't know of any others. That said, there's simply not much significance to this--as illustrated by the huge aftermarket for wheels on Jeeps.
The aftermarket is going to offer far more selection and better prices. Further, if the black Mopar wheels you're looking at are the ones that come with the special editions this year, their backspacing is terribly high and I've heard of dealers selling them at obscene prices.
If you absolutely must have that look, you be much better off with a set of black Mamba MR-1s (these
), which look basically identical to the current special edition wheels but also have appropriate backspacing to support bigger tires and won't cost a ridiculous sum of money. Of course, if you're more flexible on the look and don't necessarily need (or want) it to look "stock," then your options open up tremendously.
