backspacing with 33x10.5?

I was going to mount my 33's on my stock rims but they would rub the leafspring a lot. What backspace would be good? I'm looking for a 15x8 inch rim too

3.5 or less, though that may be hard to find. I find putting a couple of washers under the steering stops keeps the tires off the springs and still gives you a pretty tight turning radius. I'm running three washers on 32x11.5's on 15x8 with 4' backspace
