Rims again..

I will be getting 15x8" how much backspace should they be in order to install 31x12.5 or 32x13.5 tsl sx tires without hitting the springs & without Spacers.

Thanks in advance

I currently run 15x7's with 3.75" backspacing without any spring clearance issues... due to the desire to have a wider stance, I will be getting 15x8's with 2-2.5" backspacing ASAP. That should give me a more desirable stance whilst lowering the center of gravity.

I run 33x12.5-15 on 15x8`s with 2" backspacing & have no problems with contacting the springs.

I am running a 15x10 w/ 2 1/2" b.s. and they have 35x12.5 tires on them and there is no rubbing. I do rub with a 14.5 tire on them though.
