Did you mean less backspacing? More backspacing will move the wheel and tire inwards and increase the chances of the tire rubbing. Or is your objective for the tire not stick out beyond the fenders?
There are 2 potential issues with larger tires. One is due to increase tire radius which is addressed by lift, fenders, etc. The other is due to tire width which is addressed by wheel backspacing. You need to move the wheel outwards to fit the wider tire.
