So many questions

You really can't see much from these angles though. Personally I would stay with 8" wide. I don't like the low backspace wheels (<4") because it sticks the tire out too far, which looks goofy to me, and it puts more stress on your unit wheel bearings also. JMHO.

Good luck

The middle pic with 33's and 4.75 backspace is great. I love the look of that jeep. What type of flares are those? Did you have rub issues with 4.75 backspace? I really wanted the wheels in tight like that and I couldn't find really any wheels 15x8 with that kind of back spacing. I had to settle for 3.75 backspace but don't want the wide stance. Are those 33x 12.5? I have a 95 YJ and if I could get the same look you have there I would be pumped but need to know what to do.

I am one that likes the wide stance look, with that said nice looking jeep. Would you mind posting some more pics? My rims have 4.25BS and I'm debating on which size spacers to run.
