Help: wheel back spacing

Im planning on buying a new set of tires and wheels. The tires are going to be 31x10.5r15's. The wheels are going to be either 15x8 pro comp 98's or 52's, can't decide yet. I'm wondering what is the proper backspacing so that i get 0 rubbing even at full turn? They will be on a stock truck but plan on getting the springtech spindles in thefuture.

correct. the smaller the backspace the farther the wheel will stick out.
