Almost time for new tires

So our 08 jku is going I need tires real soon. We have a Sahara but the prices for an 18 inch tire are crazy. So I'm thinking of going with a 285/75/16 tire on a 16x8 rim with a back spacing of between 4.5 and 5. Would this combo work?

Yes, thats close to what I plan to go.
I decided to go with a 15x8 rim and 305's.

I also have a sahara.

Its funny how its cheaper for 5 new 15" tires and rims, then 5 new 18" tires lol
