DocterWrangler Bolt pattern is 5x4.5 and backspacing refers to where the wheel sits against the rotor. The larger the number, the further in to the wheel well. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but for 33's biggest backspace is 4"?

Need some help with choosing wheels

Hey guys, I am thinking about buying new wheels since I am going to have to buy new tires.

I am not sure how to measure the bolt pattern or backspacing... not sure what backspacing even is... I have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler Sport with a 4" lift. Currently has 33x12.50R15 tires. If you happen to know the specs and can let me know, thank you =)

I am looking for a steel 15" wheel that has a strategically placed valve stem (I have already cut one while jeeping) to reduce the chance of damage. Also I would like the wheel to be black in color. Any Suggestions?
