Need some help picking wheels/tires.

I'm putting a 2.5" lift on and want to put some 33's on.
I want to spend under 2k. I'm not sure what the pro's con;s are to wheel size, 15" vs 17:... Nor sure what tires are best in my price range.

Here is the lift: 07-13 Jeep JK 2.5" Premium Kit w/ 2.2 Perf Shocks - Rough Country Suspension

Looking at these:
Jeep JK 2007 2012 Wrangler 15" Package 5 Goodyear Duratrac Tires Black Wheels | eBay

Jeep JK 2007 2012 Wrangler 17" Package Nitto Mud Grappler Tires Black Wheels | eBay

I spend most of the time on the road, little offroad, but when she is offroad we run her hard.

Thanks for any advise.

The Duratrac's are great onroad and offroad. Going with 15" rims and tires cost a lot less then bigger rim sizes. I put the 33x12.50x15 Duratrac's with 15x8 Level 8 Trackers on my JKU. It's a great combo. I put them on with no lift and now I have a 2.5" lift.
Here are some pics. 1st pic is before the lift at stock height. 2nd pic is with the 2.5" lift.
