33x12.50 on 15x8 wheels, back spacing help

i have a 2002 edge with doetsch 3" spindles, 1" tb crank, 3" rear blocks, looking to run 33x12.50s and a 15x8 wheel. before i order the wheels. what backspacing do yall run? im going to get some wheel spacers for the rear to even them out from the spindles up front. im looking at the american racing mojave teflon wheels and they are 3.75bs. will that work or should i look for something 4"?

I ran 33x12.5 on a 15x8.5 wheel with 3.75in backspacing back when I only had a body lift and coil spacers. I never had any problems...

I run 33x12.50's on 15x8's with 3.75 BS... only a 3" body lift... I would say go with that, or a little less if you like it to stick out more. Anything more than 4" of BS you run into rubbing issues.
