I want to put on some different wheels but not sure what offset I need. I will be using my samurai in the mud and will be putting tractor tires on it. What offset/back spacing do yall recommend?

With no tire size given it's hard to say. Most likely you'll need the least back space possibe. Maybe even 0 with a spacer behind the wheel to keep the tire tread lugs off the springs with a full lock turn.

I have always used standard 8" wide aftermarket wheels. When I ran 31" x 10.5" tires I didn't need any offset, but when I went to 33"x11.5" tires I went to 1" spacers.

Can you use a 15x10 wheel and 33-12.5x15 tire with no offset? Will it still need the 1 inch offset?

You will need at least 2" of offset with that combination.
