wheels?

So what 15" wheel will fit? I would like to get a 15x10. Preferably the steel pro comp street lock (bead lock copy) wheels.

There are lots of 16x10's available, I just looked at Pro Comp and they have them in all of their styles.
If you are going to use 12.5 or narrower tires most people go with an 8 inch rim. The narrow wheel helps to keep the bead seated when running low pressure and helps to protect the wheels edges from damage.

15's are a tight fit on a JK.
You need back-space of 3" or less with steel wheels, I don't know if aluminum wheels will work.
With 15's you sometimes have to grind the front brake calipers for clearance.
There's a few threads around that show what you need to do, (search) and you shall find

I run procomp series 97, 15" with a 3.75 backspacing. Works perfect. No grinding calipers, no rubbing anything. 15" wheels = cheaper tires.

no, you need a bolt pattern of 5 on 5, not 5 on 5.5
