New to driving in general. Need help with backspacing.
Sorry to bother you guys but i have a '97 tj and I'm looking to switch out the stock rims to silver cragar soft 8s. I want to keep the tires i have now they're Firestone Destination LE's. This tire specifically:http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....EOWL&tab=Specs. How much backspacing do i need? I'm not planning on getting bigger tires in the future either. Any tips would be appreciated too. Thanks!
Most came with 5"-5.5" BS, so 5.5" or less. Less backspacing means wider stance.

Yes, they will fit. They will also stick out further than your stock rims.

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.
