wheel size

I'm trying to order a fifth wheel to mount my new spare, because the genius that had it before me had a 15 spare and 16's on the jeep. So, here's my problem, there are after market rims on it black rocks that have a 4in back spacing but i dont know what size i need. I'v got 16" tires on right now but the order form for the matching wheel i found is giving me the size options of 16x7 with a 4in backspacing or a 16x8 with a 4.25 back spacing. Anybody know which wheel size i need?

It mainly depends on size of tire that will be on them. How wide are your tires? My guess is probably going to be the 8" wheel over the 7".

Your wheels should be stamped with the size inside. Pull one off if you need to, and look.
