biggest you can toss on there without any trimming on a 16" wheel is a 265/70/16 (30.6x10.4x16)....you could go with a 265/75/16 (31.6x10.4x16), but you'll rub just slightly on this plastic inner fender liner flap in the front (easily cut and you wouldn't notice its not being there once it is cut) and slightly on the rear bumper cover. As far as a 17" wheel goes, you don't have much choice (it's not as common an offroad wheel size, so the choices are very limited...smallest size they offer is a 265/70/17 (31.6x10.4x17), and again you'll have the slight rubbing problem front and rear...and if you do go with this (I'm assuming this is going with your stock wheels on this setup), you'll have rubbing problems on your lower control arms up front and one you OME shocks all around (since they have hard-boots)

Yeah, I know...Jeep keeps screwing over the owner, and you can't fit a 15" wheel, because they won't fit over the brakes.

edit - apparantly you can fit a 15" wheel, but will have to go with some crazy 3.75" backspacing in the front to cover the brake size - JU thread on wheels complete with pictures & with a 15" wheel you can do any 31x10.5
