Default backspacing...

ok i got a chance to buy some 16x8s with a 4 3/4 backspacing, so my question is would they sit far in or stick out a little?

Compared to a stock 7" wide Ranger wheel, a 16x8 with 4 3/4" BS:

The outer rim would be moved about 3/4" farther out.
The center of the tire would be moved about 1/4" farther out.
