TJ 15x8 4" vs 4.5" bs

I've got 4 bent rims(go figure), and im looking at some new rims. I have 15x8's with 3.75" bs. Im thinking of going with something that won't stick out so far. Can I see some front and rear pics of tj's with 15x8's and either 4" or 4.5" bs? Thanks guys

Ansen Spirit wheels with 4.5" of back spacing, and 35x12.50 15 tires. 4'' flare coverage. You'll need after market (narrower then stock) lower control arms, and adjustable to track bars to center the axles. Even then you will probably need to add a washer to the steering stop to prevent rubbing. I still had minor rubbing on the anti-rock when I was aired down. IMO 4'' of BS is about perfect.

3.75" is perfect for oversized tires imo. 4" work as you have a 10.50 wide tire but ever switch to 12.5 and youll rub control arm on full turn. 4.5" im sure youll rub even more

I have aftermarket arms. And I plan to go with 35's or 37's in the future.
