cragar soft 8 questions

so i've decided to upgrade my wheels/tires before anything else.

i'm probably going to order my soft 8's by the end of the week, just want to make sure this is all good.

i'm going to get 31x10.5 bfg mud-terrain km2's (and probably eventually upgrading to bigger tires down the road)

i searched for this a bunch of times... but came up short on answers pretty simple answer i would imagine but on jegs.com the 15x8's are only available with 4.00 backspacing and 4.75... which should i go for?

Get the 4.00. I got mine from Summit Racing, best prices and free shipping.

Yep, I think the 4.00 is about right if you are planning on running a 12.50 (wide) tire down the road. (33X12.50X15).

I just ordered mine from
Summit- coming today paid 41.95 for 15x8 with 4"bs. ( they price matched jegs) One other wheels to look at is the Cepek dc2's. Summit has a $10 gift card with each rim and the sell for about 95.

i'm going to order my wheels today... should i order lug nuts with it? i think i want black lug nuts... the lug nuts i have now with my factory wheels have some rust on them... i'm ordering from summit now since jegs upped their price... i don't really know what i'm looking for to fit for the lug nuts though.

The black is going to come off the lugs when you actually use them, i just kept the stock lugs, i didnt even buy the center caps for the crager 8's just painted the axle ends black and it looks good.
