determining and maintaining current stance

is there a formula for figuring out the back space and offset to maintain the same look I have now with 15x10 rims if I go to a 15x8?

Current rims is Eagle Alloy 15x10, -46mm offset, 3 5/8ths backspace, and want to go to a Mickey Thompson Classic II in a 15x8 size. but want a similar look in the fenderwells

33x12.5 tires if that matters

show me a pic of the side of your jeep, like this, and I can make a very good guesstimation for you. I did alot of research on backspacing and wheels b4 I bought mine, an I still have the pics of assorted jeeps with different measurements

The tires on my Tj are actually 32x11.50x15, and my wheels are dick cepek DC2s they have 3-5/8" (3.65") backspacing. they give plenty of room to clear everything. if you went with that same backspacing and a true 33x12.50x15 tire you'd have the same look as your 15x10s. click the pics to enlarge them.
