What wheel would be best? 35" Duratracs on a 16 in wheel

Hey guys, Ive been wanting to upgrade my wheels and tires for a while now. I currently have a 2.5" RC spacer lift in my 08 JK Sahara. I knew I could fit 33's easily and ended up going big and bought 315/75R16 Goodyear Duratracs. They measure out to 34.6". I got a great deal on them for $750 for 4 tires.

I just need wheels now! I am not sure what wheels would have enough backspace or not, but I have had my eyes on the following wheels :
Level 8 Guardian

or

MB Wheel 72

or

Level 8 Trackers

I already have RC 1.5" wheel spacers on it...so I can keep those on for an extra wide look. What would you guys suggest?
Is the backspace on these wheels enough to not use spacers?
Also, would an 8.5" width be good enough for such a wide tire? (315/75R16)

What color is your Jeep? I like the Guardians ,but as far as my taste. Those Dick Cepeck DC2 is some of the best looking wheels on the market. Maybe Santa will bring me some next year! Lol

Yeah same color Jhaynes. And I agree, the Guardians are awesome looking

Only problem is I am not sure which Guardian to go for (), there are 2 different versions of the Guardian, one having more backspace than the other I think.
I'm not sure which would be more practical to get...or which would provide a better look. Need some help with this
