I have 32Ē TSLís on 15x7 Centerlines on mine. The narrower wheel helps keep the bead set when aired down. Not sure on back spacing though. Canít find a pic as the gallery went poof when the site crashed.

I started with 31 BFG AT on Einki wheels. 15X9 I have a 5.5 of back space or 1.5 negative offset from center depending on rim manufacture. I have pic floating around but I think they are with 33's on the same rims.

I don't have a pic at the moment but I have an 88 Samurai with aprox 4.5" of suspension lift. I run 30x9.5x15 on the Pro Comp 97 Series wheel which is 15x8 and 2.5" backspace. The wheel part number is 97-5885R2.5. Not sure what color options they have for this other than black but you could easily have them painted. IMHO, it's a great steel wheel option for the Samurai and the perfect backspace.

Sounds like a perfect fit for what I'm looking for. I only have the 2" shackle kit so I hope their is enough room for these.

Does this setup stick out if the flares and if so how much? I do want to widen my Sami a bit.

It does, I'd say by 2 or 3 inches. I'll try to snap a few pics and post them later today or tomorrow so you can get an idea.
