3.75" might be a little low, I think with 4.5" backspacing you'd probably be alright. I know there are several members here with similar wheels and stock size 235/75 so hopefully they'll comment on their experience or wheel specs

Here are some similar wheels with more backspacing.

US Wheel just like you posted but with 4.5" BS
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CRR-3975734P/ Cragar 4.25" BS with circle holes

actually if you got the 15x7's with 3.75" backspacing you shouldn't have any issues, I have the 4.5" backspacing by my rims are 15x8's so actually they would stick out .25" less than my rims

yea they will stick out more than stock rims... but they will stick out just about as far as my pro comps do since he's only getting 7" wide rims
