Wheels???

About to order wheels for my '98 TJ. I'm thinking of going with Pro Comp 1069's. I like a deep dish wheel. Any suggestions on backspacing? I'm looking to put 16x8 or 16x10 with 33x12.50 DC Crushers.

4" or less. If you plan on airing down offroad, the 8" wheel will hold a bead better than the 10" with a 12.5" tire.

I just put these same rims on my Jeep. They come with 3.75 inch back spacing on the 15 inch rim. I also have the 8 inch width for the airing down advantage. I would stay with the 15 inch rims as the tires may be a little less expensive and more available.

Thnks for the replies! Don't plan on airing down any, just want a good looking wheel/tire combo.
