4" of backspacing on a 15x8 wheel will position the wheel 1.5" further out than a factory 15x8 wheel with its typical 5.5" amount of backspacing is. Also, my advice is to go with nothing wider than a 15x8 for that size tire. Your tires would have an easier time remaining safely seated when aired way down for offroading than they would on a 15x10 wheel.

Tires will be about 4" outside of standard flares

InfernoGirl 4.5" max bs for a 12.5" tire on a TJ. 4-3.75" are most common.

Proper backspacing

Buying 33 12.5 97 4 in lift. Looking for new wheels, what backspacing do I need to avoid rubbing?
