New wheels and tires

I am leasing a 2008 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara right now and the tires are a bit thin for heavy snows where I am. Its my first Wrangler and I love it and plan on buyin the next one.

Rather then buy new tires for the 18" rims I have I am looking to buy some 16x8" Steel rims and some LT265/75R-16 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO E for it. I think I am going to buy some black Cragar rims but I am not sure what back spacing I should be looking for. They come in 4-5" range.

For that size tire 5" should be fine, but if you want to keep the wheels and upsize tires on the next one you might want to go less.... And welcome to the forum

Thanks for the info! Been going though some of the site, really cool stuff on here!

Changed my mind like the matte look of the Black Rock rims better
