Talking Rims

Hey guys,
Still searching for some rims for my 2006 Wrangler. I'm getting Fierce Attitude tires (245/75/R16) and currently have 15" rims.. Which means I need to get new rims (what a shame haha). What all rims would you guys suggest? I know i want alloy wheels, black in color with some chrome accents. What would ya'll suggest/ or think would look good with my silver Jeep and new tires?

P.S. When attempting to search at JC Whitney the guy asked me about backspace/offeset, diameter, and a bunch of other stuff i had no clue about. Could you inform me about anything else i might need to know?

You will need at least a 16x7 with max 5 inch backspacing. I put a set of KJ 16x7 steelies on and found out after that they have 5.5 on the back spacing and they are very tight in the back. I will rub the tires against the spring perches and I have some slight rubbing the lca's at full right lock. You do not want to get too low on the backspacing bc then your tires will stick out too much. Could be an ok excuse to buy new flares however and you seem to be so bothered by having to buy new wheels. I like the mamba wheels that are a copy of the 16" moab's and also Mickey Thompson classics and some of the American racing wheels as well. Have fun shopping.

So a 4.5 backspace will be ok? and why a 16X7 rim instead of 16X8? I know NOTHING about rims :/
Thanks for the info!
