You can put lots of different rims on your jeep as long as you match up the bolt pattern. 5x4.5.

I have 16x8 rims with 265/75/16 on my jeep. It's lift 2 inches with OME shocks and springs. This metric tire measures 31.7 inches. If you go to. 245/75/16, you can fit these with out a lift.

Look at my gallery for pics of mine.

I have 245/70/16 on mine that were installed by PO. I have a small BL installed that helps with clearance. I did have to add a washer to limit the steering to get rid of rub at full lock.
