Default backspacing question

i was going to pick up the US wheel series 94, 15" x 7", 5 x 4.75" rims, but they offer them in a 3.75" and 4.5" backspacing. I know the 4.5" b.s. is closer to stock, but i want a wider stance and am not sure if the 3.75" b.s will rub. I have 235/75/15's, but plan to go with 30x10.5's. anyone have any experience with these? also, i'm curious as to if rims with less b.s. put more strain on the bearings, bj's, etc. oh yeah, i have a '00 jimmy diamond edition 4dr, 4x4

it most likely will because that is almost half of stock b.s. if i were i would just get the 4.5 and maybe crank that tbars up an 1". it would look about the if not better because it wouldnt look like its squating with its wheels stickin out toooooooo far.

Same kind of question i already asked in a thread i started, but do you think if i do the same wheels as TetanuSshot, i could fit 30's if i just crank up the torsion bars?

its might be a tight fit and you most likely scrub the fender. if you crank them close to 1.5" or so it may not scrub that much.

If you crank the t-bars in the front and do nothing with the back then yes it will raise the front above what the rear is.

unless you have an uber-raked blazer like mine and even after cranking the tbars, im still barely level...
