New Jeep Owner- Wheel Upgrade Question

I have a 12 Wrangler Sport Unlimited with stock steel 16 inch wheels and Wrangler tires. I'd like to upgrade to the standard Jeep Wrangler 17 wheels. Is this possible? Any reference websites?

Thanks in advance.

Go aftermarket 15's or 16's with proper back spacing. The tires will be cheaper than 17's

Don't wast your money or time on stock wheels. You will regret it.

My '12 came with the 16" wheels and tires, I bought a set of take off 17" wheels, all 5 for $250 and put on Toyo Open Country AT 285/70/17s. I am very happy with the setup, I wanted to stay with the stock wheels so they would be inside the fenders, I also like that they are hub centric and decent quality.
