Need help looking for new wheel/tires for 12 unlimited

Ok, this is my first forum post, and first Jeep, which i am very happy with (besides the cylinder head that needed to be replaced at 12k miles) but anyways after some searching it seems "which wheels will fit on my new Jeep" seems to be a popular topic. but anyways, after some research i have a better idea of what wheels i want and what will fit but still could use some suggestions. So generally i am looking for new wheels and tires on a 2012 sport unlimited. I was thinking 16'' or 17'' black alloy wheels with 33'' AT tires. I understand that without a lift this will fit as long as the backspacing is <4.5''. I plan in the future to get a 2''-3'' lift(would like to keeps my warranty vaild, not sure what my options are with that). but any suggestions, online sites? I went to my local "4x4 center" and they were useless. i would like to get all the specifics down before actually purchasing anything. any help would be appreciated.

cool wheels

Kelsey73, That looks awesome! I just ordered the same (12) all white sahara. Love the ferrari influenced style wheel in the dark gray on a white vehicle.
