Bought wife a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited

Hello all. New to the Jeep world. Just bought the wife a 2011 Jeep Wrangler.It's all stock and is the Mango Tango orange. It's going to be her daily driver. She absolutely loves it! We are wanting to give it a "tougher" look.
Anyways, I was basically "given" a 3.25" suspension lift for it. It's in the garage, not installed yet. Our question is, what tires and wheels should we go with?!?! We don't want chrome, or solid black wheels. It has 18" stock wheels on now, but could go with a 17". And what backspacing?
And tires? Wanting to go with 35s. Nothing too aggressive.
Thanks all, and will consider all response. Will post pics, before and after!!

Congrates on the new jeep. As for color of the wheels I would get a shop to paint them as close to your mango tango as possible and leave maybe silver or black accents. Cant really help with sizing and type of tires trying to figure that out on mine myself

For an aggressive looking rim brand, look at ATX. They make some really great rims that I may be going with. They come in all different accents and styles, one of them are sure to be the ones you want. As for tires, the best tire I can think of that looks aggressive but doesn't drive too aggressive is the Goodyear Duratrac. Looks very mean, light weight, you can get it in a 35", and will do great for daily driving. I think a 17 black ATX or evena Black Rhino (another rim company) rim with some silver accents wrapped with 35" duratracs is a a very aggressive and great looking setup. And, if you guys so desire to hit the trails some day, those tire will do fantastic. They are an all terrain, but perform almost close to a mud terrain off road, but also do awesome in the snow and rain, unlike many mud terrain tires.

I think orange wheels with some black or gunmetal accents would look great. As for tires, i cant help with the size but go with the duratrecs. I just bought a set of them in a smaller size for my Jeep that i dont plan on lifting for a while and i love them. They handle really well in town and on the highway and look like they will be great off road, i have not had the chance to test them on a trail yet.
