Recommended Backspaceing for 35s???

When I bought my jeep a year ago it didn't have a spare and I've put it off on getting one since it's rather expensive, I've finally decided its time to get one, I'm getting 35x12.5/15 tire to match all the others with a 10" wide steel wheel, my question is what is the best recommended Backspaceing? I was going to buy both the wheel and tire from tire rack so when it's shipped it's already balanced free of charge.

Here's the link to the wheel I was hoping to get but it gives two options to Backspaceing which seem very similar:

Also if anyone knows of a place to bundle a tire and wheel that is cheaper, let me know as well

Check with amazon, you'd be surprised on the wheel-tire combos they have

I would use 3.75" BS. I would use 8"-9" rims though. You dont really need 10" wide rims.

I'd get the same backspacing as the other wheels, you'll need to measure it.

This is now to measure it, that yellow tape measure is measuring the backspacing dimension.
