5.5 Conversion help!
I am looking for anyone that has, or knows, what the correct wheel backspace is for the following setup for my TJ Rubicon:

Reid outer knuckles
5 on 5.5 locking hub conversion

I plan to run a 285/70R17 tire, which translates to roughly a 33x11.50. Based on what I have been able to figure out, assuming this setup pushes the track width out 3/4", I will need a 4.25" to 4.5" backspacing. Does this sound correct?
