How much backspacing?

I wanna put 31x10.5's under a 2" lift, how much backspacing do I need to keep them from rubbing the LCAs?

4 1/2" should do the trick. That's 3/4" further away with a 15x7" rim. That will make the wheel mount to outside edge 2 1/2" (from stock 1 3/4").

If you go with a 8" wide rim, you want to still consider the 4 1/2" rim, just expect 3 1/2" from the wheel face to the outside face of the rim.

I agree 4 1/2 is just about right. I did the same on 3 inches lift and it was perfect and didn't stick out to far.
