Pics of ZJ's with 17-18" wheels?

I know that sounds wrong, but my ZJ is for the wife, its 90% pavement and 10% dirt. I would like to put a A/T tire on a nice rim. Thought about putting on a larger diameter wheel and filling out the fender a bit. I don't want some super low profile lowrider look, just a nicer wheel and A/T tire. I haven't ever seen one and would like to find some pics before I order a wheel.

Thinking about a 2" budget lift to allow a 31" tire. Maybe not, depends on what it looks like, that why I need the pics.

Thanks

Ian

Thanks for the pics. I am thinking something chrome, in an 18. I want it too fill in the fender. Maybe not, she might ding some curbs with them! ha, she better not! I kinda like that look for summer. I am undecided. I want to lift it 2-3" but then she will be upset because its harder to get the kids and dog in, and then i will want to go highter and add bumpers and lockers and I gotta stop here. lol Maybe the 18's will be fine and stop me from modding it too much(doubtful).

I think Overland and Commander rims are 17inches. Those usually look good.
