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

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 !

Can you list the wheel and tire and lift you are thinking about using?

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 ?

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.

Would like to see any pics jk on 16x8 wheel with 12.5 tire width with backspacing between 4.5 and 5 . Just to see How far would my tires stick out past my fenders.
Thanks !
