What size wheel spacers do i need?

I have a TJ with the following set-up:
- 6 inches pocket style flares
- Canyon Wheels (15x8 and 5.5 inches backspacing)
- 31x10.5 Tires (for now)
I would not like the tires to stick out of the flares, just to line-them up.
I am also thinking of upgrading 33x12.5 in the near future, does this mean i should get another spacer size? if yes, which one?

Any recomandations on which brand to get? Pictures with the same set-up?
Thank you for the answers!

To push them out of a 6" flare is gonna be tough. Stock TJ flares are 3" wide. You'll be better off picking up some new flares and putting on 1.5" spacers or buying new wheels with 4" bs. I've never seen (for good reason) spacers that are 3+"..... Too much stress on stuff to extend them that far. The only other way to get them outside those flares would be longer axles.... 10" wheels would get you more width, but you need at least 12.5" wide tires for them, and they are heavier, also adding to the stress.

Okay so if i get a 1.75 spacer (or 1.5 ?), and 33x12.5 tires, on my stock canyons, will this at least make the tires line up to the flares? i don't want them to get them outstide

I made some calcultations, and i would like someone to correct me if i'm wrong.
With the stock sahara flares, stock wheels and 10.5 inches wide tires, i had my tires perfectly lined-up with the flares.
Now i got the 6 inch flares, which are 1.75 inches wider than the sahara flares, so that means i need a 1.75 inch spacer to get the tires lined up?
And if i get 33x12.5, which is 2 inch wider than 31x10.5 (that means one inch per sidewall) then my tires would stick one inch past my flares?

is it as simple as this?
