wheels

I am going to start stocking up on supplies to lift my truck in the spring.

Planning on running 33x12.5x15 inch A/Ts and i was wondering what rim specifications (width, backspacing, etc.) would be best to go with so i don't rub on the valence and such cuz i don't want to trim.

Any suggestions would be great....i also don't want to spend a ton on wheels because my budget is low right now....

Thanks

Also i live in MA and i don't know how **** they would be as to how far the tires stick out so i assume a 4 inch backspace would be ok with 33x12.5s and no rub?

ill probably go with the chrome version of those though..

I found a set of stock wheels off of a 99 explorer 4x4. My question is will they fit my 95 ranger with manual hubs??
