I see a lot of people run Cragar Soft 8s that run ~$50/wheel. I'd you want to run 33x12.50 in the future then I would say 3.75-4" backspacing. I have Granite Alloy GA9s myself.

Yep, what invert said... 4.5-3.75" bs is best for a 12.5" tire on a TJ. And due to their cost and classic good looks Soft 8's are extremely popular...

Do yourself a favor and look at getting alloy rims instead of the steelies. Alloys look better, are stonger, better for your jeep and look better

15" MB72 alloy Vs 15" Steel wheels

Like InvertChaos, I have the Granite GA9's too. Love 'em.
I got my GA9's with BFG KM2's at Tirerack.
