3 5/16 backspacing for 33's?
I've decided that I upgrade my stock 03 TJ a little. I decieded to go with a 4 inch suspension lift and 33's. I was about to order my tires and rims tonight and realized I didn't know what backspacing I should get. I would like to go with 15X8's and the only backspacing listed on the website is 3 5/16. Does anyone have any pictures of wheels with this backspacing?

Hank, I don't have any pics as I run 15x10 rims on mine, but that is a pretty standard backspacing. It will move your tires out a bit and help the 12.50 wide tires not rub on the control arms when you turn or when you wheel. It will look good and work great.

Others might have some pics for ya though.

I would try to stay close to 3.75" backspacing, like 3 5/8".

3 5/16(3.313") sticks out too much imo. if I were you I would call and ask if they have the rims that you want to buy in 3.75"(or 3 5/8) backspacing.

It'll be about a month. I have to find the time to install my new 4inch Rough Country lift. I think for the money I found the best lift, tires and rims.
