Need help with tires, rims, and backspacing

I ran 285/75 16 tires on Rubicon Moab rims which are 16x8 with 5'' of BS. It's very close. If you have stock lower arms, or your front axle is not centered with an adjustable track bar you will rub at full turn.

I've got a 4" lift with 33's on 17" x 9" wheels with -12 (4.56") offset. They fits good. Don't know if this helps, but maybe you can figure it out from there.
