Not sure what that backspacing works out to be, however if it is between ET45 and ET50 it should fit with possibly only rolling of the outside guards.

I run a 275/60/15 on a 10inch wheel.

Just had to grind the caliper bolt, bend the brake line. Also cut some of the plastic that is behind the tires as it would have rubbed and cut the fenders. I am running 0 drop springs with drag bags. Stock shocks with 60k miles on them, stock gears, axles and stubs. Cut a 1.41 off the footbrake.

Thats what i run, and you absolutely need air bags. They stick out a bit and are tall.
