Currently we're running the factory TJ wheels with 235/75R-15 AP tires. Our TJ is driven on the street 100% of the time. We plan on purchasing a set of winter wheels and tires soon because we live in New England. (I'm thinking about used TJ wheels and retreaded, siped 235/75R-15 tires). Back to my original question, which size wheel and tire combo work best on a street driven TJ? Should we stick with the 15's or move up to 17's or 18's?

31x10.5R15 goodyear duratrac will fit with slite adjustment of steering lock. They are a A/T tire and raited as a snow tire. With a 10.5 inch wide tire you can use the stock wheels. The duratrac also comes in stock Wrangler size.
The 235's are what I am going to use. Have the stock rims w/215's right now. Will go to 235's with some lighter weight alloys when I switch. I have Michelin LTX's now, they are great on the road but I would probably get stuck off-road. They just won't wear out, and I can't see replacing them if they aren't worn. It is my DD, so I don't want to go tooo extreme.
I have my 99 jeep wrangler with no lift and nothing done to it. I want to get these rims : 16 inch ballistic hyjak 5 x 4.5 i just want to know if i get tires will they fit without any rubbing and what tires would fit because im not sure what to do right now
I think a set of good all terrains would serve you well. I would stick with a 15inch wheel much cheaper and easier to get tires for. I have 32x11.50s BFG KM2's but, have had the AT K0's and they performed great all around. I really didn't need the KM2's but, I loved the look of them. 235 would be fine for you though if you don't want bigger meats.
The Yokohama Geolandar ATS in either the 30x9.5, 31x10.5 or 33x12.5. They're inexpensive, wear evenly and work well in the snow here. I've never had a problem with them since I got them in the spring and they don't seem to hydroplane as much as the BFG AT/KO or Mud Terrains.
That's not death wobble, the roads in PA are just *that* bad.
