16x7 vs 16x8

Currently have stock wj. Got new 225/75 r 16 bfg at's on it. I'd like a wider stance and i'd like a set of D windows or soft 8's. All i'm finding is 16x8 with 5 inch backspace or 16x7 with 4 inch backspace. Which would work better? Couldn't really find the answer with the search function and I only got one answer on the wj forum but it wasn't any help. Any help would be appreciated.

Both of those wheels will put the outer edge of the wheel/tire combo in the same location.

Go with the 7" wheel. Its a better match for the 225mm width.

I'm not sure, you might want to ask over in the WJ Forum.
