TJ Wheel Spacing Question

I just bought (4) 31x10.5xR15 MRXTUS M/T wheels & (4) 15x8" PROCOMP Alloy wheels for my TJ Sport. Does anybody know if i'm going to need some type of wheel spacers or anything regarding backspacing ? I appreciate your help.

Thank you,

I don't think you need spacers. I'm not familiar with your wheels though.

To all who serve, Thank You.

Most aftermarket rims come with 3.75" of backspacing on them. That will make it to where you will not rub on the control arms. There's no need for any kind of spacers.

like 1BLKJP won't need any kind of spacers...i just got my 32's mounted a couple hours ago and there 11.50" wide with 15x8 wheels and 3.75" backspacing and they don't rub at all so with your tire being even more narrow you definitely won't need any spacer (if the backspacing is around 3.75" or even 4")
