Suggestions for new rims??

I'm looking to pur some new rims on my TJ. I like the stock 15" ravene rims I have now, but they don't stick out enough, not sure what backspacing they have. I just bought the tires BFG's 32" 11.5 Does anyone have any suggestions? Pictures of your rims would be nice as well. I'm thinking about 10" rims with 4" Backspacing. I know I will need some new flares if I widen the tires, but it's only money.

I was also thinking of just getting some spacers 1.25" spidertrax or some other brand, but I don't think they would make a big difference.

10" rims are a bit much for 32's would stay with a 15x8 for those tires. as far as backspacing goes 4" sounds about right for 32's
I run 33's with 15x8 rims and they look fine

guys are running 8in. rims with 35x12.50 tires.
Buying 10in. rims is no good for your size tires..it wouldnt look right and would serve no purpose. Your more prone to break a bead with the 10in. also.

Heres a pic of my jeep with 32's and 4.0" backspacing on 15x8's. Ypu can get somewhat of an idea...no rubbing either.
