backspacing question

I have the canyon rims sitting around and want to use them on my jeep with a set of 33's but worried that even with spacers on they'll still rub. I was wondering around how much BS they have and if i can just keep using them or should i invest in something with less back spacing like pro comp rock krawlers. Mainly is it safe to run them with 33 x12.5s and spacers

Should be safe to run spacers its the same as running wheels with a smaller backspacing. And i believe the backspacing on zj canyons is like 5.5 or 5.25

I had 33 12.50's on stock 95 limited rims with either a 1.25" spacer or 1.5". I can't remember. It didn't rub at all at full lock turning but I also had an ARB bumper. You want 4" to 3.75" of back spacing and you should be fine.
