There's LESS tire clearence of the fenders with a wheel with say 3.75" backspace compared to a wheel with 4.5" backspace. The more 'out' you go on the wheel backspace, the more likely you'll rub.
Stock 7's and stock backspace can get away with taller tires easier. See: all stock 98+ 4x4's running 33x10.50's. And see: all 3" BL'd rangers on 35x12.50 on sucked in wheels.
Fat backspace is a fuck-u-over as far as rubbing. My 15x10's w/ a sucked in backspace for 10's(4" bs), rubbed pretty goodlike when only bodylifted on 35's.
