Rims that wont make your tires rub!

Hey jeep forum! I just got some general grabber at2 235/75-15 for my grand cherokee and I threw them on some rims that I found on Craigslist for cheap but the have very little back spacing so I had to put the tires on the stock rims for now..
I was looking online and I really like these http://www.jeep4x4center.com/black-r...952571245.html
These have a 4 1/2 in back spacing and are 15x7 so I'm pretty sure they will tuck into the wheel well or be at least very close to the stock rims back spacing, I just want to
make sure. Stock offset is 2.85 in and these are 2.5 so they should be close.
Any input is great!

You'll be fine with those, they will stick out a little bit further since stock backspacing is more than that.

I'm just worried they will rub the wheel well like they did before, even if it is just a tiny bit I'd like to avoid rubbing as much as possible. I'll post pictures later to exactly where it is rubbing

Here are my stock rims with new tires and that is where the other rims were making them rum and I hope that the new rims don't touch that trim at all like the stock rims do

Your springs might be sagging if you're rubbing with that size tire on those rims. I ran 30x9.5r15 on those rims on stock suspension and it only rubbed if I turned full lock

Yea that's hitting the fender. Usually they only rub the control arms at full turn with wider tires. Saggy coils and shocks maybe? Do you still have a bump stop back there?
