CJ: 3 3/4 inch backspacing on wheels for 73 cj5??

I have found a very good deal, 4 for $299,on American Racing Atlas wheels size 15x8 at Sears. They have a back spacing of 3 3/4". I have put on a 2 1/2" lift. A friend of mine thought I would have to many problems with this much back spacing. What do you folks think? Isn't this the amount of backspacing on factory wheels?

1. Of the top of my head,
2. It seems OK,
3. I think you can go to 4",
4. But I am not a suspension/wheel guru,
5. So I'll let the experts chime in...
