Back spacing

Hello i am starting to order parts for a build. I have a 15 JKUR, ordering metalcloack 3.5" gamechanger with rocksport shocks. Now my question is what back spacing will i need if i was to run with 35s? i did some research and seen that i should go with something 17"/9" 5 on 5 bolt pattern with a 4.5 " back spacing. I am having a hard time finding rims with a 4.5" backspacing. what will happen if i went with something smaller like 4.25? can any of you experts help me out? Thank you

With a 3.5 inch lift, back spacing probably won't matter much.. I've been running 35's with a 1.5" lift on wheels with 4.5 back spacing and have only had a little rubbing at full turn/full articulation - 3.5 inches of lift and i think you'd be fine. 4.25 back spacing would be even better.
