Shouldn't you already know the bolt pattern since you already have aftermarket wheels? haha.

5-4.5 or 5-114.3 and stay with a more negative offset like a -12(4 in backspacing) on a 8 inch wide wheel would be perfect!

Yup, anything between 3.25 and 4 is perfect in my book. Also a lot of the jeep wheels have the same bolt pattern as our trucks and will fit.
