It will be detirmined by what size and design of wheel you are looking at. The JK already sits pretty wide so I don't think you would want to go too wide. Most people do just enough to clear everything. I personally have 15" steel wheels so that required me to go with at least 4" to clear the calipers but I wouldn't think you would need to go any wider then 3.75 or 3.5 at the max. I belive 17" steel wheels you can be down to the 5" range. I think stock are only something like 6.5 so people are running spacers to fit wider tires or they will rub. So I guess the important question now would be what size/style/type wheel where you thinking about?

Here is a little info to give you some ideas.

If you end up getting some wheels post up in that thread so others can have that info as well! :beer:

if you are going to wheel it, stick with 33's. 35's will rub with only a 2 bb.
