What Tires should use with this wheels?- Help Please!!

I'm thinking about buying a set of Walker Evans wheels. They come with different back space; which one of the following will better fit my Jeep? Also, I'm putting 35s on them; which tire width should I get? My Jeep is is an automatic/2drs daily drive Jeep.

Size Back Space
17x8 1/2 5x4 1/2 3 3/4"
17x8 1/2 5x4 1/2 4"
17x8 1/2 5x4 1/2 4 1/4"
17x8 1/2 5x4 1/2 4 1/2"
17x8 1/2 5x4 1/2 4 3/4"
17x8 1/2 5x4 1/2 5"

Thank you ahead of time for your help!!!

Either 8" or 9" wheel width with close to 4.5" of backspacing seems to work best. However, you will need a wheel with a 5X5 bolt pattern.

They do come with a 5x5 bolt pattern. So is 4' and 3 3/4" better or 4.5 it just a good?

Thanks!
