Wheel choice based on tires and lift???

Ok here is where I am settling in...

It is time for tires..going with Duratracs 31x10.5x15.

I have no lift but planning on doing the OME Econo which is 1.75" coil spacers and OME shocks at the same time.

Now before I pull the trigger and get things ordered I am wondering about wheels. My plan is later...a few years down the road I may..repeat may spring for a "real" lift and 33's or 35's. If I upgrade wheels now, what backspacing should I order so that when I go to either 33's or 35's I won't have to change wheels?

Thanks!!!

Looks like you have a tj, you need 4" backspacing or less to fit an 12.5 inch wide tire.
