Default My 1999 XJ

Hey guys,
Got my XJ as my first car a few months ago. I have been thinking about a few addons but i need some help deciding.
Im not going to be doing much offroading mostly just driving around town, to school and work.
I would love to get Cragar Soft 8's (black) but im not sure what size would be the best fit for my tires. As of right now im running goodyear wrangler rt/s... p235/75r15. How would the Cragar rims look with these tires?

Next question is, do i need a lift? should i get a lift? If I were to get a lift... how big of a lift would be right for my setup? If i were to go with the cragars.. how would they look if i dident get a lift with the wrangler rt/s's? and how would a lift look with the size of tires im running?

I was driving around the other day and i saw another xj with fog lights, he said that he installed them him self... do they just screw in and you run the wires? I have a 1999 sport and on the dashboard i have a spot for foglights but odviously they r not installed.
Thanks everybody for all the help!!
Pics are great!!

if you get the wheels in like a 7.5 or 8 inch wide 15 it will make ur tires look a little wider and if i was gona put a lift with that size tire id just do like a 2 inch budget lift there cheap and easy to install and will give u a good stance with ur wheels and tires

That sounds like a good idea, how would I remove them? Is it easy?
