2005 Rubicon Tires / Rims help

2005 rubicon
-4 inch lift
-1 inch bl

I need new rims and tires i want to use on the Trail / DD use. I want a wider aggressive stance, but also acceptable for trail use I used wheel spacers before, on my old rig, but i want to get away from this.

Should i go 33x12.5 on a 15x 8 with 3 3/4 backspace or 15x10 with 4 inch backspace?

or should i go up to 35's and if so will it effect my torque and power?

35x13.5 on a 15x10?

thanks

Don't do 35's. It'll kill your power without an expensive re-gearing job.
