Wheel Backspacing

my ZJ has a 4" lift and right now im running 31x10.5 on stock wheels 15x7 with 5.25" bs. Im just trying to figure out if 15x8 with 3.5" bs would stick out too far or rub with the same tires. Any one have any ideas?

3.75" or 4" would be best

3.5" is too much I think. 3.75"- 4" is good.

This is 3.73" on my 95 I think. Stock rim with wheel spacers.
