Hey guys I just bought a new 14 JK sport and want to throw some wheels and tires on. Did some research and the lightest combo I found was the 33x12.5 duratracs with the 15x8 blackrock 909 d windows. My only concern is the backspacing. The 3.75 backspace provides no issues but the d windows are 4. I know it's only a quarter inch but is that going to rub at all. Anyone run a similar combo?

Stock Wrangler wheels are 6.5 Back Spacing.
Many run 4.5 BS, with both 33s, and 35s.
So you will be good to go with a 4.1 BS.......
