Wheel help

I'm looking to put some new wheels on my Jeep. I'm looking at the XD Addict and there are two options on backspacing and offset and I don't know what ones to go with. Option 1 is 4.5" backspacing and -12.00mm offset, and option 2 is 5.71" backspacing and 18.00mm offset. I would like to use 285 65r18 tires. I have the RRO leveling kit so I think they should fit OK. As for the look of the wheels, I would like sidewall of the tire to match up with the top of the fender as much as possible with out sticking out. Would either of these give me the look and fitment that I am looking for?

Here are the wheels:



Thanks,
Tony

Re: Wheel help

You will want the deeper backspacing (18mm) to tuck the wheel in tighter. It will still stick out of the fender slightly, maybe 1/4-1/2". I have 285/60/18's with 25mm offset wheels (just a bit more backspace than the XDs) and stick out just slightly, around 1/4".
