Backspacing Help

I have a 2003 Rubicon. It currently has 16" Moab wheels, but I want to buy American Racing Mojave Black Teflon Coated 3981 series wheels. I've been getting mixed answers on what the backspacing is on my Moabs, and what backspacing I need/want on the American Racing Mojaves. I want to keep the backspacing the same - in other words, I don't want the wheels any further inward or outward. What backspacing should I get?

I'm looking at these:

American Racing 39816865 American Racing Mojave Black Teflon Coated 3981 Series

Would 4-1/2" backspacing set the wheels further outward or further inward than my current Moab's, and by how much?

Thanks for the help!
