315/75r16 on 16x8 bs 4 7/8 question

Hi,

Is someone have or had this Setup : 315/75r16 with a 16x8 backspacing wheel of 4 7/8 and a 3" suspension lift without wheel spacer ?? I'm wondering if i'll rub in flex or when steering gonna be full axle ?

For now I'm with 285/75r16 and it's ok and I'm looking for to move to 35"...but I would like to avoid using spacer....Could I ??

If I need spacer with this setup I'll be to much out the fenders..

Thanks for helps !

Karl

Ultra wheel 16x8 (194-6873B) backsapcing 4 7/8 with 35" Duratrac 315/75r16
with 3" suspension lift. I'm know with a backspacing of 4.5 would be ok...but with a 4 7/8 ?
Thanks

U should be ok, a friend of mine has 5+" of back spacing on 17" xd monsters and has no issues with 35" km2s. Duratracs run a good bit smaller in height and width also

I can tell you with an aev lift that will work. Not sure about others. I hear other lifts use different sway bar links that stick out further.

For reference the aev brand wheels have a 5.2" backspace and they test and claim 35" tires that are 12.5" wide have no rub. So your tires would be a little bit further out than theirs. Of course they would stick out past the fenders the same amount more.
