Default 01 blazer zr2, wheel size

looking to get some 31x10.5x15 BFG A/T tires and am wondering what size wheel i should go with (backspacing) so that i can avoid the 2 front tires from sticking too far out from the fender. with 15x8 soft 8's with 4 inch back spacing, the tires in front stick out about 1 1/2 inches from the fender and the rear tires are nice and flush with the fender. does anyone know a combination that will eliminate that stupid dune buggy look with the front tires??

I believe its 6 inches of backspacing... so your 4inch backspacing is leaving about the 2 inch gap that you are seeing...

I'm running a ZR2 with a 2" body lift, 2" shackle, and a 1.5" t-bar crank and I'm wanting to put 33x12.50R15 on it. I've seen in the gallery that lots of you guys have done this exact thing. Just wondering what width wheel you are all running and what the proper backspacing is to make this possible with out rubbing. Thanks.
