You want 8" rims. I am running 4" back spacing and even with the narrower 8.8 I have plenty of clearance with my 32x 11.50s. Actually, I would have preferred a 4.5" backspacing to help keep the tires under the fender.

4" BS with 33x12.50R15 on 15x8 rims. I had to put a couple of washers on one side to adjust my steering stop (only one side though), but other than that, it's great.

yeah, i was only rubbing when parallel parking. During normal driving, I never turned the wheel enough for it to cause rubbing.
