17" Wheels / 33" Tires Backspacing?

I want to put 17" Procomps with 33" Procomp Tires. I want to keep the "stance" of jeep as narrow as possible without any rubbing.

Can anyone reccomend a good setup? My current setup is some cheap knock-off rims (no clue on the backspacing, but the stance is way to wide) 15" with 33" Discovery STT tires.

In the process of running the STT's I have bent my Dana30 and C brackets (shown but off camber) and am trying to avoid any further damage again...

Thoughts?
