that is incorrect... going to 4.75 from 4.0 would be 3/4" inward.

her's a pic of my YJ, 3" lift, and 33x12.5 tires on 15x8 wheels with 4" of back spacing.
I had the flares off for painting, and the edge of the tub lines up almost perfectly with the center of the tire.
Also, I get a little bit of rubbing on the front springs when the steering is turned all the way in either direction.
I could adjust the steering stops, but it's not that bad, so I just live with it.
you could go with less backspace to eliminate the rubbing, but that will also make the tires stick out even more.
anyway, here's a pic,

well, I really don't know how far they would stick out with stock flares. I have 6" TJ flares, and they sit just about even with the edge of the tire.

perhaps this picture may help, the rims have 4" of backspacing and they are 33x12.50x15 and stock flares...
