Yet another backspacing question!

Well Im ordering new rims for the LJ. I am running 33x12.5x15"s. What would be the ideal backspacing to run. My options are pretty much 3.75", 3.5" or 2.75".

I already read the sticky but would still like to be 100% sure before ordering.

Thanks in advance...

3.75 is what I'd do. I run 4.25 now with 35x12.5.15 and it's a good balance between rubbing on the inner's (LCAs) and putting my tires further outside the jeep.

Wow, that's a long name for a wheel....reminds me of the "Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle" from a Christmas story.

Did you leave the soft 8's on the 60th AE?

Looks like im going with 15x8 with custom 3.5" backspacing. I think im running 3.75" now and I can rub a tad on tight turns and that's not even airred down so im hoping the extra .25" will give me a bit more room.

But if you go to fourwheelparts.com you will see the rims!

Definitely 3.75" from those three choices. The other two will make your tires stick out too far.
