Im pretty sure Jk wheels wont fit on a tj without a wheel spacer adapter to a 5x5 bolt on pattern. Since you have a stock TJ a 16 inch wheel and a 30 inch tire would work but will be weird because there will be too much wheel to the tire and is not good for offroading but if you use it just on the road I don't see a problem.

I have wheels made for the JK. With the spacer / adapter the backspacing is good.

I've got the JK 17" wheels with 32" Wrangler SR/A's and the spydertrax spacers on my '02. The 32" wheels give me a bit of fender rub off-road so I would only recommend doing it if you have a lift - the spacers allow the wheel to turn fully, they just get tucked into the fenders and rub on the top real quick under any kind of flexing.
