15 inch wheels with 3.25 back spacing

For those of you running 15 inch wheels with 3.25 back spacing what brand wheels do you have? I canít seem to find many wheel options with 3.25 back spacing. I donít want to use wheel spacers if I donít have to. Thanks

American Eagle has a pretty good size selection of 15x8 wheels for Jeeps with 3.25" of backspacing. Why do you want so little backspacing? Most are looking for more than that which is one reason I got rid of my American Eagle wheels.

I am looking for a wider stance for stability and I don't want any tire rubbing issues. Plus its a daily driver and my wife sometimes drives the Jeep. Since I drive it all the time I am more accustom to the handling characteristics were my wife is not. I would feel better with a more stable handling when the wife does drive it.

i believe there are alot more options with 3.75" BS. its only another 1/2". If your concerned about tire coverage and johnny law...the warn 6" flares cover a 12.50 wide tire on a 3.75 BS wheel very nicely.
And im running pro comp rock crawler D-hole wheels

A number of Eagle Alloy 15x8 wheels for TJ's have 3.25". I love some of their wheels, but not sure I want that little bs?

P.S. The Series 186 is a beautiful wheel. I saw is recently at a 4x4 Jamboree.

Apparently he's not.3.25" BS will stick out even farther.

You wouldn't need wheel spacers or have rubbing issues with 3.75" BS.Mine is pretty stable.
