Wheels and Tires

I just purchased my first Jeep, a 2011 Wrangler Sport with six speed manual and 3.73 gears. My Jeep is very basic with 16" steel wheels and I want to immediately replace the wheels and tires with something beefier! I don't know if I want to lift it and need advice on wheels and tires that look good and work well without lift?

I ran 285/70-17 for several months with no lift. The wheels had enough backspacing to keep them from rubbing. There was minor rub on the rear when at full flex. I put a teraflex leveling kit on a solved that problem.
