There is an old addage that I have changed a little to reflect todays upgrades.
Three rules to upgrade.
1. You can get it cheap.
2. You can get it safe.
3. You can get it easy.
But you can only choose two of the three.
The cheap stuff that is easy to bolt on is not always safe.
The safe stuff that is easy to bolt on is not always cheap.
The safe stuff that is cheap to install is not easy because you will need the knowledge, ablity and equipment to fabricate it yourself.
Do you really want your steering and suspension to rely on the lowest bidder?
Tell us what your true budget is.
I have run 8x15 steel rims on my zooks since I started. And I have moved from stock tires to 31x10.50 to 32x11.50 to 33x12.50 tires. No problems.
