In Search of rims ...

Thank you to Fx4me for the tire chart. Now if I may ask, Help for finding the rims I want. I want a wider foot print (9-10"s) and small increase on tire dia/height is ok.
I have 235/75/15's on factory wheels on it now. I believe it has a factory lift in it (2.5" rear block, see pic) am I correct on this?
Pic of a 15x8 that I want/like and should fit (see below) Rugged Ridge 15500.01 15" x 8" D-Window Black Wheel with 5 x 4.5" Bolt Pattern. Or should I go with 16x8" rims? and what about "backspace/offset" ? Do I go with a 10" wide rim?
See, I have Firestone winter tires for winter, and I want some highway tires for summer. Am not looking for mud or rock tires, so am finding it hard to match rims and tires while looking for wider, while also staying with a all season tire with a towing load range. It's a bit daunting.

TY for your help and opinions.
