You need a 15" wheel with 3.75 to 4" of back spacing. Cragar Soft 8s will work for you but you might have to take a flap wheel to the outer face of the caliper to clearance behind the holes.

There are lots of threads about this here if you want to see some pictures of what you're going to look like with that setup.

15" MB72 wheels will work with no clearance issues. I previously ran them on my JK with no problem.

They can be seen on Discount Tire's website and I can get them for you as well.

Jeg's baja 8 are about the cheapest I've found. 3.75" backspacing, some have claimed good fitment without grinding. YMMV.

Procomp 7069 and 8069 alloy 15x8 wheels fit without issue and can be had for under $100 each usually. Had 8069s on my 2008 JKU and loved the look!

I've got BFG KM2s wrapped on a set of 15" Crager soft 8s... Don't remember the back spacing but I do know that I've yet have any clearance issues or grinding on the inner surface

I got mine from Marcus with 35'' MTR/K's. They rode extremely well on the parkway. Absolutely no complaints at all. Only reason I switched them out was to go to 37's on 17" wheels otherwise I'd still have them. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. Marcus will absolutely set you up with a great deal too.
