lift and tire question

im about to do an SOA on my yj plus about 1.5 inches of lift. i plan to run 35's and i really want the bfg km2 but cant get them for a while so i want to get the duratracs the 315 75 16 but looking at 16 inch rims they all have about 4.5 inches of backspacing. are my tires gonna rub on the leafs at full turn. i remember my 3 inch lift with 32's and 3.75 of backspacing i had less than an inch of room before they hit.

Yes they will rub. I'm running the same lift, my tires are 37 12.50 R16.5. I'm running a 4in BS on my 16.5 time and come close to rubbing if I had side lugs they would hit.

You can always adjust your steering stops to prevent rubbing, will also help prolong the life of your u joints as you won't be able to turn at an extreme angle (where a u joint is at its weakest)
