I'm a complete newbie to Jeeps and know even less about wheels and tires. I want to replace my wheels and tires (stock) on my Unlimited. It's a 6 speed manual transmission with 3.21 gear ratio.
What are the largest tires that I can put on without needing a lift kit or impacting performance (if that makes sense)? What size wheels should I get? I've been researching but it all looks very foreign to me.
Suggestions and recommendations are welcomed!! Thanks for your help!

What year is it? I know that the 04-06 unlimited didn't have 3.21 gears, but idk if the new ones do or not.

It's a 2010 - the 4 door.
It's black and I like the black wheel look as you have. Very sharp.

What type of driving are you loonkng for? On road only/ just looks, or off road as well. It will fit upto a 33 stock W/O lifting, but can get sluggish.

Mine has the 3.73 axle/gear ratio - will 33s be noticeably more sluggish ?

I just bought a 2009 wrangler x unlimited 2x4 4 door, love it, want to change rims and tires, I am getting different bolt pattern listings online, it has 16 inch rims with 225 70 16 tires, does any one know for sure if the bolt pattern is 5x5 o5 5x4.5?
