Did I goof up?

Ok so on a hope and a whim i bought 4 pacer 5x5 16x8 inch soft 8's with i'm assuming a 5 inch backspace. Now I have 225/75/16's on it now, am I going to run into any issues? Rubbing issues, going off road? No extreme off road but i'm just trying to see what i got myself into. Worst case scenario i'll sell them but i'd just like to either ease my mind or work on selling them. Thanks!

Should be fine with those slim tyres. People run much wider tyres on 4.25 inch BS without major issues. Occasionally trimming of the liner is required but you should be fine with 225s.
I run 235s on 1.5 in spacers which equates to about 5 in bs...no issues.
