backspacing on stock rims?

anybody know what the back spacing on stock ravine rims is? reason im asking is because my dad thinks that if i take my black steelies(3.75 backspacing) on 33's off (putting them on my comanche), and mount my new 33's to my stock rims that they will be to far insidemy wheel wells, i dont think it would make a difference. reason im mounting them to my stock rims is because im saving up for new rims, but i need my new tires on asap

Dad is right as usual.Stock rims won't stick out but tires will rub the rear spring perches without wheel spacers(assuming they are 33x12.50's).3.75" backspacing stick out a couple inches.
