Just put a Rustys 3" lift on my Rubicon Unlimited. Im going to be getting 33x12.50 --15 MT's . Since I need new rims for this I would like some recommendations as to the correct backspacing I'll need for this setup. Remember this rig has D44's--if that makes a difference--

You need 4.5" at most.

If you want the tires tucked under the flares as much as possible, go with the maximum 4.5".

If you want a little wider stance, go with 3.5" - 4".
