Rock Crawler Wheels

I currently have my stock wheels running on 33x10.50 tires. My question is, can I fit wheels that are 15x8 with 4.5" backspacing? What are you guys running?

Using wheels with 4.5" of backspacing on a TJ will allow you to run up to a 12.50 wide tire without wheel spacers.

They'll fit fine. Just make sure to get the right 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern.
