Came across this ad today and immediately thought of your jeep:

Lives in garage:

2004 Red Jeep TJ "X", big tires, suspension, stereo delete, dent in cowl.

If you end up needing a wheel, contact the tire/wheel sellers in Moab. They have lots of stock Rubicon wheels and will sell them cheap. We got a '16 JKU wheel from one of them for $25 back in February when a friend bent one of his on a sharp ledge. If you go to spacers be sure to get hub and wheel centric ones. Most tire shops refuse to work on rigs with less than excellent quality spacers.

Thanks guys. I think Im going to go with new wheels if I can find something I like in the right offset/backspace for <$200 ea.

Now my dilemma is 33s or 35s... (see my other thread for that debate).
