98 ZJ 5.5 IRO LA Critical Path - OTK steering - WHEEL HELP

Hey guys I'm ordering the lift shortly. I ordered the iro 4.5 inch lift with all adj ca's. I returned it due to me wanting more height... So the IRO 5.5 LA critical with adjustable ends, JK discos, steering stabilizer and OTK steering. I don't know what I need wheel wise. I'm planning on 33x12.50x16. But please help with the wheels because with OTK I heard I can't use 4.5 backspacing.

You're going to want closer to 3.75 or 4" of backspacing for those tires. If you still can, don't bother with the IRO steering and get something else. Currie or JCR is what I'd go with.

I'm gonna use the IRO OTK steering kit, it's much simpler for me to do that online, etc. I just don't know about the whole
Backspacing thing.
