Help for a Newb? Wanting to upgrade...

Hey all, I'll try my best to not have this read like every other newb post on here, but what can I say? I'm new to all of this, so here we go.

I have a totally stock 2007 Unlimited I bought this past fall (my avatar). I live in the city so I don't really do much off-roading in my day to day, but I do LOVE my Jeep and I could see myself making a hobby out of it and heading off on some trails and things like that (not rock crawling or anything that serious).

Anyway, I like the whole black & white color contrast my Jeep has going for it and I am wanting to continue that theme with some black wheels and maybe a bit bigger tires.

How big can I go without getting any rubbing issues or affecting my turning radius? This Jeep is my daily driver, is getting any type of bigger/meatier tires just a ridiculous idea for the city? Is getting bigger tires without some type of suspension upgrade a bad idea? I don't really have any facilities to do much of this kind of work myself, anything I should know before I go to a shop?

Basically, any knowledge, even links to past threads or good resources would be appreciated. Thanks, guys.
