Backspacing Help

I have a 2003 Rubicon. It currently has 16" Moab wheels, but I want to buy American Racing Mojave Black Teflon Coated 3981 series wheels. I've been getting mixed answers on what the backspacing is on my Moabs, and what backspacing I need/want on the American Racing Mojaves. I want to keep the backspacing the same - in other words, I don't want the wheels any further inward or outward. What backspacing should I get?

I'm looking at these:

American Racing 39816865 American Racing Mojave Black Teflon Coated 3981 Series

Would 4-1/2" backspacing set the wheels further outward or further inward than my current Moab's, and by how much?

Thanks for the help!

Measure the backspacing on the wheels you have now and then go from there.
