I think the AEV wheels are a good choice. I went with them because they were specific to the JK, designed with JK geometry and tire sizes in mind. An excellent value for what they are, JK specific wheels. I believe that extra design thought brings less wear and tear and better handling.
There are tons of wheel manufacture's but the back spacing and offsets are all compromises for the numerous applications that a 5x5 bolt pattern fits, not that most of them are bad they just are not vehicle specific.

Narrow tires and the wheels that fit them are just not popular, my ideal would probably be a 35/6 tire on a 7.5 or so wheel with 5 inches back space, no such animal unless I custom build a wheel and buy a container full of specially built tires...
