what size are my stock wheels?

hello everyone.
i've got a '94 zj w/I6 i'm close to ordering my lift and to save money from buying new wheels right now and put that into other mods i'm hoping they are 8" wide plus what is the stock wheel backspacing. i'm looking at getting 32x11.5x15 tires and so hopefully you understand my reasoning for saving where i can now and go for function over looks.

on another thought, since i live in arizona and it's the desert region (lots of sand and rock formations) what is everyones opinion on brand/tread type?

i'm running bfg a/t's on my dodge ram and zj right now and they perform well, however i have concerns about damage to that type tire when aired down? at what psi does everyone usually air down to in the terrain i described above?

You have 7x15's with a 5 inch backspace.
As for the rest, there are better qualified people than me on here to answer.

With that stock wheel, you're going to have some tire rubbing issues on the front swaybar and maybe front shock. You'll also have some rubbing on the rear shock.

You'll rub like mad at full steering lock. You may want to look into a tire and wheel package that doesn't have that deep of a backspacing like 4 or 3.75 to avoid the tire issues.
