New wheel question
 
I have a stock 2006 Wrangler and I found a great deal on some wheels locally. They are 15X8 with a -28mm offset. The best I can figure is that is some where in between a 3.25 and 3.5 inch backspace. I want to run a 31X10.50X15 AT tire with no lift. Will these wheels stick out too much and look really goofy? Any other problems you can think of? I appreciate any and all input. Thanks

They very well might....I run the same size tire with 4" backspacing and I've said to myself that if they stick out anymore, it would almost look silly.
BUT, it's personal preference!!!

That is 5.5 backspacing.

on 31's you shouldn't rub but you may have trouble doing some good offroading. I have 4" BS but I got a 2" BB also, I am not sure of the offset but they stick out a bit but I like it and a little wider stance is not a bad thing. If you want to be sure mount a tire on the wheel(they should not have any problem doing this if you are buying them at a tire shop) put on the front and turn the wheels both directions all the way to see if they hit or how close they come.
