backspace of factory wheels

does anybody know the backspace of the factory wheels of a 92 yj? a friend is wanting to put 15x8s with a 4" backspace. they want the wheel to stick out about an inch more then they do now.

im not sure if its the same on yj's but i know a tj's backspacing is 5.5"...15x8's ought to push it out about one more inch than normal...if he has the 15x7's...with 4" backspacing it might stick out a little more than an inch but not much should be good
