Backspacing Question

I'm looking into some 15x8 rims for my 85 J10. I'm wondering what backspacing I would need to clear 33x12.5 tires. Pictures of what you have would be very helpful too.

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.
