I think you are a little confused. The backspacing on a stock ranger is 4.5" not 3 5/8". The lower the number the further the wheels are going to stick out from the inside of the truck. in all the post's I have read about backspacing I have not seen anyone once say with 3.75 bs and 33x12.5 on a 15x8 rim that they had rubbing at full turn. I have seen many many people say that the above mentioned setup would keep you from rubbing. I am confident that my 3.75 will keep me from rubbing.
I looked up some info for you so you can do a little more reading on the subject. http://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2/...ck+backspacing
