Upgrade wheels/tires... what will fit?

Hi everyone! New to this forum. Picked up a Black Laredo X ORAII with Quadra Lift. Great ride.
I am not impressed with the stock wheels and tires and have been looking around these forums for info on what will fit.

So far I've figured out the stock wheels are 18x8 with 56.4mm offset yielding about 6.7" backspace.
I've also found that people have been able to put on 275 65 18 tires on stock wheels with stock height. (Are these guys on springs or the air-ride?)

Assuming that tire fits with no issues with the quadra lift.... I'd like a better 18" all terrain / off road wheel. I'm having issues finding something that will our the WK2. Everything out there seems to not have enough backspacing... so it would stick out further from the wells. Now, I'd probably be ok with a little extra sticking out... but definitely less than 1". Anyone have any recommendations? Experience? Any pointers?

Thanks guys!

Really love the new Jeep and ready to have some fun!
