tires and backspacing

Ok guys I've got an 02 tj with the 2.5l engine and I'm wanting to do a 2 inch coil spacer lift kit, and run 32x11.5x15 tires, the question I'm having is with the wheels I want. I know the model and brand but its the sizes and back spacing I'm curious with and what would be the best fit. The options for the wheels I'm looking at a 15x8 with a 4 inch back spacing or a 15x8 with a 4.75 back spacing. Thanks again for the help everyone!

I also have 32x11.5x15 tires on 15x8 wheels. 4.75" bs is a little tight but it would work, but personally I'd go with the 4". Depends how tucked in you want? But 3/4" isn't much of a difference.

This picture is mine with 3.25" bs (note that I have Rubi flares that are an inch wider then stock TJ flares).
