16x8 wheels with 4" backspacing: Where to Buy?!

I have been scouring the internet trying to find black steel 16x8 wheels with 4 inches of back spacing and have had no luck. I need 16x8 because I have good tires and cant afford new ones for say 15's. I found some with 4.25 inch back spacing would those rub with my 12.5 wide tires? Any help is appreciated!
Thanks

I also understand I can put washers behind the steering stops but who wants to lose steering.

Quadratec sells Moab clones that I believe are 16x8 with 4 bs. Word is that they're hub-centric as well--a little more than $100 per wheel.

Moabs are 16 x 8 with 5" BS.

How about some wheels with 4.5 BS?

I wasn't talking about Moabs; I was talking about some clones sold by Q-tec. I thought they had different backspacing, but I was wrong--http://www.quadratec.com/products/92615_210X_PG.htm
