That backspacing is cutting it too close for me.
32.8x11.2/16".

Thats exactly what I run and have not had an issue . If you have the correct bracket extension on your rear axle for the track bar keeping it close to the stock angle, you should be fine . Keeping your rear track bar as flat as possible keeps the left and right motion of the axle to a minimum so you wont have a rub on the spring mounts . In the front some say to add a washer or two to extend the steering stops if you can stop yourself from turning the wheels far enough to rub the OE control arms. I have no rub on my aftermarket arms.

I went through a set of tires with that setup without any problems. For grins I put my 315/70/16 tires on without my wheel spacers and they fit, but it was too close for me to be comfortable with on the 315 size.
