I may be in the minority here, but I would prefer my tires to not stick out way past the fenders. What I have been looking for are wheels 17x8.5 with an offset of +18 to +25. There are not many that fit these specs especially that are light weight. I plan post wheels that I find in this thread and hope others do as well.

I have the Pintlers and they are not heavy. I saw someone weigh them under 30lbs.

Not sure if this fits the theme of the thread, but the Grand Cherokee WK2 wheels have the same bolt pattern, are available in 17" x 8", and have 56.4mm offset. The extra 1/2" width over stock would allow more tire sizes to be mounted, and with a 1.75" spacer the effective offset would be +12mm. If you consider 18" wheels, even more styles are available.

The Raceline 944B OUTLANDER is a +18 and I think around 27lbs. But I'm not sure if I care for the looks.

I believe the AEV are +25mm offset (Borah 5.72”; Pinter / Saverge 5.77”) and the MOPAR Off-road are +12mm (5.22”).

If you go with that offset, just understand that adding a lift later will likely cause issues. A spacer lift should be fine, though most lifts require 4.5 inches of backspacing to avoid rubbing the control arms. 3.5 inches for 37+. Admittedly, I do love the look of having the tires tucked in!

My plan is to go with the Dynatrac lift. I do not remember seeing a backspace requirement, but I'll call and ask.

The concern comes about when you add lower control arms (LCA's). If you're adding something like the Dynatrac JL20-1X5310-A EnduroSport 2" Lift with Fox Shocks, it doesn't include LCA's. At that point, it would simply matter if the tire was already hitting your existing LCA's.

Here's a list on Custom offsets, on the left column you can select offsets, I selected +25 but it shows a list of +18 thru +25, just have to go through a few offset selections to show the full lineup of positive offset wheels.
https://www.customwheeloffset.com/store/wheels?sort=popular&suspension=Leveling Kit&modification=No trimming&dia=17&width=8.5&offset=25&bolt=5x5,5x127
I had noticed that too. Why when I pick +25 does it show everything from +10 to +30? And I don't think they show weights of many wheels if I remember right.
