Tires and wheels?

Help! I have an 06 Rubicon, my third and best jeep of all. I do not use it off road much, it is more of a utility work vehicle. I have it set up with a fisher plow and it plows snow like crazy. It has a 2" BB lift and a 1" body lift. The question is, can I put 35" on it? I have 33"s on it now on the factory rubi wheels, 16". I would like to put summer wheels and tires on. Tires that are quite. Should I get 15" wheels for the summer? Would that be less expensive and give me more tire options? What would anyone recommend? I like the Mickey Thompson classic II and the General Grabber AT2. If I went this route what sizes should I go with, suppliers?

35s will not fit.. On the other question, 15" rims will give you a much greater selection of rubber, and the money saved on 15" rubber will nearly pay for 15" steel rims.. If your going with alloy rims it will be a long time before the savings on 15" rubber will pay for them.. I kept the stock rims, I like the look, and the weight..

35's are a definite no go with only 2"bb and 1"bl. you'd need at least a 4" suspension lift.
