Wrangler upgrades?

I have a 1997 jeep wrangler almost completely stock. i want to make it look nice. the first thing i was to do is put larger wheels on it and possibly rims. i just got this about a week ago and it is my first car. it has a 2 inch suspension lift lit on it. what size tires are best for a 2 inch lift and a 4 cyl? also let me know how yalls look and more upgrades recommended.

Well not knowing what gearing you have in the diffs, I'd say the safe bet would be 31s, possibly 32s. You can run 31" tires on your stock wheels if they're 15X8. With the right gearing and some fender flare trimming, you can fit 33s on the Jeep but you'll have to be cautious with your axle articulation so you don't thrash the fenders.

Just so you know...wheels and rims are the same thing. wheels/rims are the metal part. Tires are the rubber part.

Like Bone said, I probably wouldnt go over 32s with the 4cylinder.
