33x12.5/32x11.5's on 15x8 3.75" BS

I'm at work so I cant take the time to run a search in the area here..

Just have a quick question on backspace/rubbing..

Planning on getting some 15x8 Ultra Baja Rims, w/ a 3.75" backspace.. and was wondering if its good enough of a backspace to fit a 12.5, or if I should go ahead and just stick with a 11.5 on the tire. I'll be running stock with a crank right now, and later in the summer getting a 4" SL.

The tires in question will be some BFG KO's 32x11.5/12.5's..

Just curious, will be able to be back in about an hour to check up.. hopefully someone can clear it up for me.. Thanks guys/gals!

3.75" is what i'm running on the 11.50s. my buddy is running 5" backspace on his 12.50s. But he's got the RCD and 3" body. I'd say your good to go.

Wasn't aware that you can get 32x12.50s?? I know 31x12.50s are there.

hi guys, do you think it will be ok to fit 33/12,5/17 with 4,75 backspacing on my 2008 ranger with 3" bodylift and t-bar crank without using spacer and rub issues?

ill do bodylift in about a month and my 17" procomp mags are in the garage for 2 months with 33/12,5/17 baja claw radial...
