Correct Backspacing and Offset for 15x10 w/ 32\'s

Still need some help with my finding some Rims for my 96 YJ/6 cyl/5 speed manual. I will be putting the 2.5" OME lift on my Jeep and getting some BFG Mudders 32"x11.5's

I am going with 15x10 Rims.

I was going to get some Baja's but I am dropping that now. The local car shops in Syracuse haven't been very helpful when I asked them about the Backspacing or the Offset for a YJ. Most said that is doesn't matter.

I just would like some rims that will take a beating on the trail and not rub. Look is less important. Price is irrelevant too. I have looked at some of the other posts about Rims and I am still not sure what to go with. I have taken in what many people have said about having "as much backspacing as possible and still allow full turning." But without having Rims to compare I can not figure out which ones have less rubbing. Maybe if I had a competent rims dealer in the area this would be less of a burden.

Thanks

That's WAY too much wheel for those tires. I wouldn't go any wider than an 8" wheel. I run those same tires on my factory 15x7 chrome wagons and they're just about a perfect fit...15x8's would be a bit nicer for a more aggressive stance, but they work for me as is. BTW: There is no such thing as a '96 YJ and don't *ever* call your Jeep a <font color=red>car</font color=red>

Jeepskate:

Right now I'm running 32 X 11.5's on 15 X 8.5's. How big a tire can I go on this wheel size? How do I determine what lift is on my '84 CJ7? As far as I can tell so far, it's 5.5" rear and 3" front. At what tire size does it become very real that I'm risking my AMC 20 and/or Danna 30?

Sorry about calling my Jeep a car.

But it is a '96 YJ. It is the '95 YJ model made in '96. It was the last year of YJ's before the TJ's in '97.

I got the 15"x10 rim idea from the BFG website. They had a PDF file on the BFG Mudders and it recommended 15"x8 - 15"x10

I am running 35" 12.50's on 15X8's. They hold a bead real well. Have run them down to 5 with out rolling one yet!
