New Shoe Questions

Ok guys...I've done tons of research before asking this question. Hoping your experience may shed some light. I've read up on all the backspacing/fit/aftermarket stuff for my 13' JKUR. But....

2.5" Lift (AEV)
315/70/17 duratracs
rest is stock for now.

I LOVE the AEV Sevegre Wheels. They are made "especially for the new JK's and JKU's". They have 5.2" backspacing. AEV has stated "No problems" when I asked them about fit/rub with this setup. However, it is contrary to most of my research that seems to show that 4.5 backspace is the magic number for my vehicle and tires bigger than 32's. If I go this route, should I expect rubbing bc of the backspacing?

Any and all comments welcome!
