35s and 17" wheel backspacing?

I have a 2001 Wrangler (TJ) and need to know what would be a good backspacing for 35x12.50R17 on 17x9" wheels?

I currently have 3.75" backspacing with 33x12.50R15 on 15x8" wheel and it works well. Maybe something equivalent?

Thanks!

BS is related to tire width, not height. So, your tires will still be 12.5" wide regardless of how tall they are. You can keep your same wheels or put on anything with 4.5" bs or less.

Since a 9" wheel is 1 inch wider, wouldn't equivalent backspacing to 3.75" be 4.25"? That way the center line of the tire/wheel would be in the same place?
