Wheel suggestions please

I have a 01' XJ with a 3in lift, OTK steering 5x4.5

I bought 16x7 steel wheels to fit the OTK steering before I had a grasp on offset/backspacing, scrub radius, the wheels have 0 offset and push the tires out to about flush with the wheel well

I want to go up to a 31" tire when these tires wear out.

I know I need at least a 16" wheel for the OTK to clear but when I go up to 31" they are going to be wider and I'm not sure I want that much tire sticking out the wheel well.

No Mall Crawler wheels, I live in the desert and wheel my rig, looking for as much side wall as possible so I can air down and not ruin the wheels and tires.

Question is, are there wheels with 5x4.5 that will fit better with keeping the tire under but not rubbing, mainly thinking takeoffs or other inexpensive not $500 per wheel option out there or will the wheels I have be ok.
