285/70/17 on 4.5in backspace wheels

So I'm having my 4" superlift installed as we speak and 4wheelparts is nervous and isn't sure if my 285/70/17 duratracs will fit on my 17/9 XDaddicts which have a 4.53 backspace without hitting the fender while turning.
Can anyone tell me if this is going to be a problem? I thought most after market wheel companies ran similar backspacing and I see alot of people running 285s on even 3" lifts. They've got me all nervous because I need the vehicle for a long drive by tuesday. I would love it if anyone who has 285s on wheels with similar backspacing could tell me if they had any issues or not. Thx

Did you take care of the pinch weld already?

Thx notrans, and yea Omelet. It's not the undercarriage stuff they are worried about. They are worried that the tires will stick out so far because of the 4.5 backspace instead of somthing more like 5-5.25 and will contact the outside of the wheel well. I personally just can't see it since so many people are running 285s on a variety of wheels but I just wasn't sure if maybe my wheels had significantly less backspacing than others. If notrans is fine with 34s with the same spacing, I should be fine.

Well just make sure you take care of the pinch weld up front and the rear fender mod. That will keep the fenders from chewing up your tires. Then if need be extend your bumpstops. That will keep your tires from crumbling your fender on hard compression.
