90 YJ Backspacing?

I have factory wheels with 31x10.50s on my 90 YJ. Does anyone know what the backspacing is on the factory wheels? They rub at full turn and I will be replacing them soon. Any suggestions on a suitable backspacing for this setup? What about some pics?

Stock backspace is 5" IIRC.

I run 4" of backspace on my wheels and they never rub at full turn. I have 31x10.50s right now and no rubbing, when I go up in tires I think I can run a 35 and not rub at full lock.

Adjust your steering stops and the rubbing will quit.

You could do that but a good wheel with the proper backspace is the best way to go.
