Try those skinny tires in the soft sand. Won't work. If the skinny tire were the ticket, you would see a lot more of em on comp rock crawlers, trail rigs, and desert racers.

Backspacing may tell you whether a wheel, regardless of width, will fit over your calipers or hit the inside your fenders; but offset really is the more important figure because of it's use in determining the handling via the scrub radius. Just because most Jeep owners ignore it (and then wonder why their vehicles handle so poorly) does not diminish its importance.
