35's on an XJ

I'm trying to get 35's on my cherokee and i'm in need of some help. I have 33x10.50's on right now and i need to get 35x12.50's on it. I measured the gap between the back of the front tire and my long arm, it's abou 2 inches right now. I think I need to get different wheels to get the new tires to fit but i'm not sure about the numbers. I want to stick with 8" wide but what kind of back spacing and off set do I need so that the tires don't rub my long arm? Please someone HELP!!

Backspacing: Lower is better. 4" is common.

What about offset? If I went with a3.75 backspacing would that work?

They would be 1/4" farther out than keepishop suggested, and just put more strain on your bearings and stuff, not the end of the world. Lots of folks run with 3.75" backspacing.
