Generally speaking, 15" rims will save you $$ and weight. Your tires (in whatever size) will also be cheaper.
You can run 33" tires on an unlifted JK w/no problems. Although, if you off-road much, you'll probably rub in high-flex situations.
The backspacing of your rims is critical, as well. You'll want wheels with around 4.5" backspacing or less if you're gonna run wider tires (11" +).
