2002 TJ sport Wheel/Tire fit question

I was looking to buy a set of winter tires and came across these on craigslist. Does anyone know if they will fit on a 2002 TJ sport.

OEM Black Mopar Steel 16" wheels off a Compass (5x114.3 lug pattern (5x4.5") and 235/60/16 BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain tires.

Id be worried about backspacing... The backs of the wheels my sit too deep and rub when you turn. With those wheels. The hub is usually just about flues with the outer Rim. Where as a typical TJ wheel has a bit of a offset... Or a resess to it

Would Spidertrax 1.25 spacers help?

Winter tires? I run BFG AT's year round. What do you run in the summer car tires?

The wheels are the original canyon rims with Nexen Rodian HT 30x9.5x15 tires. The previous owner used it in Florida so it currently has “summer” tires that do not work in snow.

I bought the jeep a year ago and my mini cooper did better in the snow then the TJ in 4 with these tires....They are almost like new but not meant for New England winters.

Instead of buying winter tires, why not buy a set of Goodyear Duratracs? Excellent winter performance, and very good summer performance. And probably not much difference in price than for a set of dedicated winter tires, plus you won't be changing them.

Limited funds. The wheels and tires I am looking at are $400. I would love to upgrade with new wheels and tires but not looking to put a lot of money into it at this point.

I also would probably just keep these on year round.

Just a suggestion, nothing more.
