Default What is the perfect bs on a 16x8?

What's up guys. As the thread title states, I was wondering what a good backspacing would be on a 16x8 wheel. I looked at all the stickies and searched as well, as I'm not an illiterate 16 year old. lol. I have a 2003 Edge and have an add a leaf in the rear, and just got bigger torsion keys in the front, as well as 285/75R16's. I was wondering if anyone has this setup, as I have only seen a bunch of block lifts on here, not really any oversized keys. I don't want to rub, and I want that "stuffed" look with the tires out past the fenders, and I will not run spacers. I need to tweak my alignment today after they keys go in before I put the new tires on, so I wanted to make sure I won't be rubbing as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks,
Bob

I just got done putting my keys in.... has no one run a 16x8 before? I'm almost positive a 4" bs would be perfect, I just wanted to see some pictures. Post em' if you run em'. Thanks!

4" backspacing would stick out just a bit. It will look good

I ran 16x8 with the stock 4.5" BSing and they were flush with the fenders.
