Default Rims with shorter backspace for wide tires

Do American Racing Baja Rims have a shorter backspace than the OEM rims? And ATX Mojave? Im interested in destination m/t 305/70/16 tires. Could anybody chime in on this. Thanks in advance

============================
What size tires do have that are 17" wide?

Is your truck backhalfed or is that the plan?

I've got McCreary 28 x 15.50s on 15 x 12 Welds w/7.5" backspacin, but I have put an Explorer type setup in the rear of my green 94 and I narrowed my rearend 3":
