questions on spacers for tire and wheels

I am putting 33's on my Wrangler. I found a sweet deal for the tires and the rims (baja radials) for 500 bucks. However, I am having to order a conversion from 5x139.7 to the Jeeps 5x114.3 pattern. They are asking me about the thickness in which one inch of space is the smallest they have. The rims are 16x10, my question is do I need more space for them cause I might as well if I need to.

If you're goin with 33x12.50's then I believe the backspacing needed is 3.75". Measure the backspacing on the wheels you're getting and you'll know what you need. Probably going to be about 1.25" spacers, if you need them.

I would buy the set... then dismount the tires... Keep the tires..... Sell the wheels and buy the right bolt pattern/offset wheels. Probably cheaper and more effective in the long run.
