New shoe question for an 09 JKUR w/4" lift

MY 09 JKUR just got a 4" lift and now the 255/75/17 wheels and tires look kinda funny (I knew they would)
I'm thinking 37" Nitto TrailGrappler MT just need to make a decision on wheels. What's the most common rim size these days? I've heard 19 is the new 18? Just looking for something I'll have plenty of options on rubber down the road if I switch out the nittos.
Also is 37 a good size for 4" lift and stock flares or will I need flats or trim my flares? Thanks!

Sorry for the crappy iPad out the window pic.

I just put a 3.5 lift and went with 35's and love it. When articulated while still connected 37's would rub like hell. The 35's have maybe a fingers width room.

No 35/12.5/17 cooper discoverer stt and I like the look of the nice aluminum rims so I kept them and used 1.5" spacers and it's a 3.5" rough country s2 lift

Cool. I haven't measured what i actually got out of the lift yet, I suspect more than 4", I had emergency surgery the same day the lift went in so I haven't even driven her yet
All is well though and I'm recovering nicely, but 4-6 weeks of "light duty" probably means no wheeling.

Yup. Take it easy. The jeep isn't going anywhere. I measured before lift and tires then after and gained over 6 inches total

Rode in it today, not as driver unfortunately.... I wasn't "allowed" to drive... ugh... Not my choice, I've been off narcotic pain meds for over 48 hours, just an overprotective partner... Anyways, seems to handle nicely, suspension is a bit tighter than stock, but pretty sure that was to be expected. I haven't measured yet, maybe tomorrow.

Oh and take it easy? Yeah I'm trying, but the pile of boxes from UPS/FedEx in the garage that contain farkle and other stuff for the Jeep isn't getting any smaller! Granted it didn't grow today, but something more will probably arrive tomorrow! ugh....

Not yet, but leaning heavily towards the Nitto mentioned in the original post, still getting opinions between 35 and 37 and deciding on rim size, I've seen sone that did it with stock rims so to save cash I may start there, we'll see
