Backspacing on a 2012 JKU

I ended up picking up tires through a Sears Black Friday special, I got
BFG KO 285 X 75 X 16

My question is for rims: I've read that the best combo is 16 X 8 with 4.5 backspacing. However, looks like that combo is either scarce or doesn't exist. The DC2 is available with 4" backspacing (not 4.5). Would that work or cause problems?

Looks like the MT Classic II black comes in the specs I need: 16 X 8 with 4.5 backspace. That will be my backup wheel if 4" backspacing is going to cause problems. Anyone have other suggestions?
