Where and how to buy big rims and tires

I own a 2009 Jeep Wrangler X Unlimited and its time to look for new tires. I've been wanting to upgrade them to large rims/tires but I have no clue on how to do this. Where can I go in the South Florida area that specializes in Jeeps for converting my stock rims and tires to large ones ?

Larger rims? The larger rims will mean larger tires which means a LOT more money. 17" tire costs more than a 16" tire...etc. A larger rim also means less sidewall which doesn't work well going off-road. I'd use the search feature and look at some of the threads on larger rims...
