Help with 18" XD Crank Wheels

New to the forum and been learning a lot... I think from reading everything about backspacing I've got the first part answered but would like some advice from people that have the expertise.

I plan on lifting my '14 Rubicon Unlimited with either the 2.5" AEV or 3" Mopar Stage III and want to use the 18 x 9 XD Crank wheel. Backspacing on that is 5 inches and everything I've read said 4.5 inches is the max for 35 x 12.50s.

I'm assuming if I go with a Nitto 295/70R18 that I would be well within tolerance to avoid any rubbing issues but would still like the option of going to a 35 in the future without doing anything additional like running spacers.

Is my assumption on the 295/70s correct? Would a 35 x 12.50 be too much for a wheel with 5" of backspacing (again no spacers)?

I've seen plenty of pics of Jeeps with Cranks and 35s but wasn't sure if they had done any additional modifications.

I plan on doing some offroading but nothing where I would need full articulation.....I say that now....It is also a daily driver.

Advice is greatly appreciated!!!
