you will see things being asked many times and you start remembering and knowing and understanding how stuff works and is.. when i started coming here i didnt know what dana 35 was.. i thought it was a differential but i wasnt even sure.. What backspacing are those rims of yours? You can run a spacer to change the bolt pattern :D

Stud pattern size:

CJ: 5 on 5 1/2
YJ 5 on 4 1/2
TJ 5 on 4 1/2
JK 5 on 5

Stock TJ back spacing @ 5.5"
Most after market rims size for TJ's buyers 3.75"-4" as it brings it a bit out from the jeep to help with rubbing issues.

but they dont use the backspacing method (i never heard of backspacing till i got a jeep).. most use offset off the center of the rim which is measured in positive or negative mm
Offset is common for many cars and most imports but trucks and Jeep wheels use backspacing as their key dimension since it's a more useful dimension where clearance is concerned. You won't find offset used on offroad oriented Jeep wheels.
