AfterMarket Wheels with 4.25" Backspace

I am going with 32" 11.50 tires with a 2" bb lift. I have American racing outlaws now with a 3.70 BS. I really dont want these to stick out very far and would like to go with a 4" to 4.5" BS. All the 15" aftermarket wheels I find have around a 3.75 BS, what gives? What are the rest of you using with 32" 11.50? Any advise?

check out blackrock, atx and cragar. they should all offer what you need. i know the soft 8s cragar sells come in 5" bs which would be a lot better than 3.75 for your bearings

The only 15x8 wheels I know of, short of very spendy forged aluminum, with 4.5" of BS are steel. I don't know of any inexpensive aluminum 15x8 wheels with 4.5" of BS and I spent a lot of time looking for them as I didn't want 3.75" either.

Did you end up going with the 3.75" BS? Are you OK with the result?

Yes with that TJ, my previous '97, I ended up with aluminum American Racing #27 15x8 wheels with 3.75" of backspacing which works ok. I would have been happier with a little more backspacing like I had with my short-lived experiment with steel wheels but...

Is it possible to run a 32x11.50x15 with 5"s of backspacing? wouldn't it rub the rear spring perches?
