4.5 or 4.0 for backspacing. They look like either 285 or 295.

4.5 seems to be the consensus "best" backspacing around these parts...

4.5" should work and give you that look

Here is a link to my post, My tires were 285 x 75 x16 with Rims having 4.5" BS. Installed pics are towards the end of the post.
