jeep wheels/backspacing

replacing my gold snowflake limited wheels with some jeep steelies (the ones that came on later XJ sport models). ive read that the stock ZJ wheels are 5.5" backspacing? are the steelies the same?

Just paint the tear drops black. They look great and they are light weight. They should be about the same B.S. I think the tear drops are 5.25.

This is what they look like. Worked perfect with 31s and 1.25" spacers.
