HELP!!!! Backspacing questions

I have 2004 LJ. I am getting a 3.5" lift and am looking to put on 33"s. I have narrowed it down to either one of 2 tires. Both of them being 33x12.5x15. I am going to purchase the MB TKOs. ***This is 905 DD and 10% off-road warrior! Ride quality is a necessity!***

Question 1 - What backspacing do I need?

Question 2 - It seems the Dura Tracs are a better tire, however, what are the thoughts on Falken Wild Peaks or Rocky Mtn.

Thank you for your help!

You will need 4.5" of back spacing or less to not rub. An I am gettin the falkens as well in 33x12.50x15 with the 15x8 mb tko( these have 3.75" of bs). You will get very mixed opinions on the falkens my guess would be try them out an judge for yourself. They aren't as aggressive as a tire but to me they do seem they would be reliable enough
