tires and wheels

Using a sizing chart i found online, my cherokee with a 1.5" spacer shackle lift should fit 30" tires without rubbing. 4wheelparts.com has bfg allterrains on sale and i'm going to order this model:
30x9.50R15, BFGoodrichAll-Terrain T/A KO-RH2

What i can't figure out is what width wheels i need to order. 7" or 8"
Rock Crawler Series 98 Gloss Black Monster Mod Wheel-RH2

Rock Crawler Series 98 Gloss Black Monster Mod Wheel-RH2

any insight?

I'm guessing you would want to go 7", but I'm not totally sure. Make sure you get the proper backspacing or there is a chance the tires could still rub when the Jeep is flexed.

You can run that size on a stock jeep with very minimal rubbing. If you are replacing the wheels get a 15x7" wheel unless you plan to go to a 12.50 wide tire at a later date. You also want 4.5" or less back spacing to keep from rubbing the lower control arms at full lock. With the 15x7" wheels with 4.5" backspacing you should still be able to stuff the tires without hitting the flares.
