New to Jeeps, New to Forum. Wheels question

So far, this looks like the go to place for information. Instead of getting thrown around from place to place anymore, I'd rather ask the people that know. I bought an 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X this past summer. I live the vehicle and want to improve some of it. With exception to the rust issue along the whole underneath, the Jeep is immaculate for it's age. Purchased in Portland Maine. The low tire indicator came on a few weeks ago and when I went to put air in, the valve caps were corroded on and 2 of them snapped off. Not a huge deal, to have valves put in. The tires are in great shape but the wheels are stock and are fairly unattractive or ugly to some. I've been searching for new wheels to put the tires on but am finding very little that these tires will fit on. I get conflicting answers from, NTB, Tire Rack and Town Fair Tire. If I understand correctly from original sticker and tires that are on and from Jeep forums; I have 225/75R16 Tires (Toyo A/T Open Country. Rim 7JX16, Offset- ET44, CB-71.5. Now I sort of understand this, so when I search these parameters, I come up with very little.
So, my question is:
1. Is there a wheel that will take these tires that I can search for just widening the parameters?
2. What size wheel and Tire can I put on, (if I choose to keep these as winter set). Without having to jeopardize the vehicle or make modifications.
3. Is there a wheel company that specializes in these questions and knows the answers without them saying that I can put almost anything on.

I have been reading this forum since I bought the Jeep and find you people are more knowledgeable and easier to get the correct answers from. At least a decent direction. Thanks in advance for any help.

Wheels for 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X

Tirerack shows 3 rims 16 x7 with factory backspacing. I bought the alloy ones in black to mount my DuraTrack 235/85R16s on my '16 JKU. They are arriving by tomorrow so I should have pics by the end of the week.
