Rim size

I have searched and can seem to find what I am looking for...
I have a 99 sport with the canyon rims with 30x9.5 tires no lift
I want to change to something like the Cragar soft 8s.
Eventually I will add a 3" suspension lift and would like to get to 33" tires.

What size rim should I order - 15x8???
What backspacing- 4" ??


My only worry is; is the tide gonna reach my chair?

Yep. 15x8's are about perfect for 33x12.5's and 4" bs is about perfect for a 12.5" tire on a TJ.

15x8's will be fine to fit a 33x12.5 tire (assuming that's what youd go with)

If you're going any wider than you should order a 15x10 rim

and the 4" backspacing will be perfect for that width tire
