Will these fit OK?, 3 1/4 back space

I noticed that most folks get rims with 3.75" backspace.
Will these work with 3.25"?

The price is right. . .

I'm running 3.25" backspace on my 2002 Ranger and I ran them with 31" tires and stock height. I have a 2002 Edge. They now have 35" tires on them.

Nope. Now with 35's at full lock going through ruts...even with the lift, lol. But even then not bad. Really, the extra backspacing minimizes rubbing. If your tires were in further they'd have more chance of it, generally speaking.
