lift, tire, wheel question.

so i know there's some faq, but none directly answers my question.
i'm gettin a 4" lift for my zj.
planning on 32x11.5 r 15 on 15x10 rim w/ 3.75" of backspacing.
i also have an arb front bumper that doesnt fall down as low as stock allowing for slightly larger tires. can you think of any problems w/ this?

Why a 10" wide rim? An 8" rim would be better suited to a 11.5" wide tire.

Im running 31's on an RE 3.5" kit and had no problems with the ARB, even at full stuff.

An 8" rim will hold a bead better than the 10", dont air down very much.

I have a 5' lift , 10" wheels with 32's rub and not on the bumper side either , and that was on the shop floor . I test fitted a set b4 buying 8' wheels , I suggest you do the same . I figured it would take some MAJOR trimming to work
