Backspacing question

what backspacing is required to run 35's on 10' rims. I have a issue with my 35's getting into my leafs with 15X8 and i want to upgrade to 15x10 and want to do away with the rubbin.

10 foot rims I thought 24's were over the top...

but seriously, backspacing measured in inches, like most jeep rims are, instead of the + or - metric notation, isn't dependant on width. It's just a straight measurement. Take the backspace you have now and subtract an inch or two depending on how deep you are into your leafs, keeping in mind that the farther you get from half the rim width, the more leverage you put on your hubs, especially if you go rock crawling or off camber. Someone might have a YJ specific answer for you on here, but it's something you can measure on your own pretty easily, especially if you got a spare

'71 DJ-5 (that isn't a typo)

RHD... it's a jeep thing
