Lots of information on this forum regarding this. Short version is that most 15" rims will not fit due to backspacing. The most luck seems to be with rims that have 3.75" backspacing (no more). But even then, there might be issues requiring grinding of the calipers.

It's far easier to get 16 or 17" rims.

pretty much any back spacing will work. The base model X/Sport comes with 16" wheels with 6.25" back spacing. So really anything less is going to work. If you plan on lifting, you'll want to go with 4" or 4.5" back spacing.

I assume you're asking what width?

8", 9", 10"- any of those will work

I have 8" with mine- 16" wheel, 8" width, 4.25" back spacing, 5 on 5 bolt pattern

Go to a tire and wheel store. You should not buy wheels without professional consultation.

You do need to understand about wheel measurements before you try to buy them...

16x8" means that the wheel is 16" in diameter, 8" wide and 5x5 (for your application) is the bolt pattern. Backspacing is the distance from the inside bead of the wheel to the mounting surface. For a JK not to rub on the calipers you need a 16x?(how ever wide is best for the tire size you want)x 5x5 bp, with 6.25 or less backspacing.

15x8 rims will fit without spacers if you buy ProComp w/3.75" BS.

See the pictures in my signature.
