tire and wheel confusion

Hey there. I'm new to the forum...actually I'm new to forums all together, so I hope this is the right place to ask. Anyway, here's my story. I have a 2013 2Door Sport. I recently bought it and it came with the puny stock steel wheels and tires. The Jeep is stock at the moment and I don't plan on lifting it anymore than 2" with either a Budget Boost or a set of higher rate springs that I have acquired. I want to really just level it. I'd like a wheel and tire combo that will give it a more aggressive stance without messing with the ride quality. I plan on some light off-roading in the future but nothing major since this my daily driver. I basically want an all terrain tire size of 32" or equivalent that's not too expensive.
So, what's the best way to go? 15" wheels? 17" wheels? What are some tire and wheels combinations that might work for me? Any help you guys can give would be great!

Look for some rubicon take off tires and while your at it grab some higher number stock springs, Craigslist or eBay. For the money this set up can't be beat.

exactly what john said. however i went that route and swapped them out in year for 285's. if you plan on going bigger and wider to make the 2 inch look better youll need an aftermarket wheel or spacers. i currently run 285-70-17 duratracs and i had to install a 1.5" bolt on spacer to each one so they wouldnt rub

Thanks guys! I did exactly what you suggested. I just picked up a nice set of 2014 Rubicon dealer take offs tire/wheels, Rubicon shocks and 18/59 springs. It all should be here this week. I think this will be a pretty decent setup for me for now. Thanks again for the advice!
