Wheel ideas for new Jeep

So I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on a 2012 Jeep. It will be my first Jeep ever. The only thing I don't like about the stock Wrangler Unlimited Sport are the wheels. Therefore, I'd like to ask your opinion on what rim and wheels I should look at, and if you know of any pics of such.

I am considering either a White, Black or Silver Wrangler.

Any help is appreciated.

The Sport has two wheel options the base model 16" steel wheels (that I agree aren't the best to look at) and the 17" alloy wheels that come with the S package. They look very similar to the stock Rubicon wheels I think. Attached is a picture of my 2012 Sport.
