Largest diameter Rim that will fit on 31x10.50 tires?

I'm buying a jeep Cherokee and plan on putting 31x10.50 tires on it. But I'd rather have some bigger rims rather than the 15's that I have on my wrangler. And I don't want to get into those metric tire sizes because they confuse me haha. So does anyone know if they make 31x10.50x16 or 17?

Your gonna have to go metric in the 16 and 17" rim sizes for the 31s, no way around it

Why would you want the largest rim possible? The larger the rim, the smaller volume of air. More air=smoother ride...

That's not the largest rim possible. My friend has 2012 wrangler with 20's I'm looking at maybe 16's or 17's. Probably 16's.

if you want to run 16s i wouldnt go anymore than a 265/75r16 without a lift, that is about a 32 inch tire.

I'm looking at a 16x8 wheel. Would that fit?

Provided the bolt pattern and backspacing are correct, yes.
