backspacing question

I just put on a 4.5" lift. I think I want to run 31"s for a while but I want to have the option of running 33"s at a later time. Should I get new wheels with 3.75" BS or just go with 4". I'm assuming 3.75 would help more in the long run but do you guys think it would be overkill?

Good tire. I'm also looking into them. If you want to get them cheaper than that though heres a link:
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/jeep-ti...n/baja-mtz.htm
213 a tire, including shipping to your door.
Also be sure to check out ebay. You can get 4 of those tires on there for $760. but thats not including shipping.

I've been running the MTZ for a couple of months now. I like 'em. So far they have stayed balanced, not too loud, good on-road, and off-road grip... Glad I got these instead of the Goodyear MT/R's...

So would the 3.75" BS look funny with 31" tires? I want them to stick out a bit but not be a fuzz magnet.
