Wheel Back Spacing

I am getting ready to put new tires on the jeep and was going to put them on the stock wheels with wheel spacers. But now am wondering if I would be better off with wheels that have the proper amount of backspacing.
So what would be the optimal backspacing to run 35" tires ?

anything under 4.5 inches will work, but keep in mind the less bs your wheels have the farther out past your fenders they`ll stick out

I run 4.25" BS with a 12.5" wide 37 with no issues

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Stock wheels with 1.5" spacers are a tried n true recipe for 12.5" wide tires

since stock wheels are around 6" BS, add a 1.5" spacer and you end up simulating ~4.5" BS

so as was previously said, anything less than 4.5" will give the clearance.

my new hummer wheels are being built with 3.5" (coincidently by TWF!)
