Rubicon wheel specs

Can anybody tell me the back spacing on the moab wheels?

I bought my jeep with 33s. and it does not look right. They stick out a good 4in. And I am going to go with MT MTZs. And I think 31s will do me fine.
I just dont know what type of backspacing to look for. A little bit sticking out is do-able.

This way I can use the rubicon wheels as a starting point.

Thanks for the help.

lol 33's on a stock jeep is not a good idea and im sure it doesnt look right. But anyway on to the help...

Moab wheels have either 5 or 5.5 backspacing...i cant remember which. Moab's are also 16 inch wheels so you'll need to find a metric size tire. 245/75/16 is the stock size tire that came with the rubicons and it adds up to about a 30.7x9.7 (basically a 31x10) which will be perfect for a stock jeep.

I just put some moab's with 245/75/16 mt/r's on my jeep yesterday and it looks great. The tires stick out about a half inch beyond my flares which looks prefect. If you want moab's just search your local craigslist for used rubicon wheels and tires and bolt em right on.
