What and where to get the best wheel/tire combo?

I purchased a 2016 rubicon jku roughly a year ago and I'm ready to put a 2.5" lift and tires on it. I'm looking at buying a tire wheel combo, but I need some schooling.

The jeep is pretty much a mall crawler as my wife drives it, and there isn't any mountains in Louisiana. I'm wanting to put on Fuel hostage D531 rims with 35" Nitto trail grapplers m/t.

Question is I know NOTHING about what backspacing or offset I need. I'm debating between 18" and 20" rims. What do I need?

Below is the best deal I could find, and it mentions nothing about backspacing or offset. Is there a vendor in the house that can do better?

If that's what you believe I'm doing, then so be it. In case you didn't noticed I grabbed a screen shot of a price, strictly for comparison reasons and to detail the lack of information on the items I requested help with. IF there is an in house vendor that can help with the questions and provide a quote for 5 tires/rims on what I need, then of course I'm going to buy from that vendor.

I find it odd you have an issue with that, surely you've shopped online before. Surely you don't buy everything locally.

I shop with the vendors here because they pay the bills for the resource I use. I don't play one vendor off of another to save a few bucks.

Thank you for your opinion and the insight into how you spend your money. Your point has been made. Hopefully you have some insight into answering my questions and perhaps can point me in the direction of said vendors.

I have a set of 37x13.5x20 Toyo RTs for sale on 20x10 MotoMetal 961s BRAND NEW if you were interested. 20s look (IMO) and function a lot better on 37s (over 35s)...PM me if you're interested, though I have no idea where you live...
