Lift/wheel/backspacing question

I'm thinking of getting a 4" Icon spring lift kit for my 2000 f350 cclb srw. I want to run 35's, but I also wanna be able to turn the steering wheel full lock without rubbing the leafs. So, I was looking at some mickey thompson classic 2's 16x8 wheels with 4.5" of back spacing. Will that be enough to clear the leafs? I really want the minimum amount of backspacing required. I can't stand when the tires stick way out past the body of the truck. I figured I could throw on some bushwhacker pocket fender flares to dress up the truck should the tires stick way out there. If anybody has any pictures of their truck with any amount of backspacing I'd love to see them. Thanks

They should work just fine, I ran Mickey Thompson classic locks with 4.5 backspace on my 02 wi no rubbing. I believe the stock back spacing is 4.25, if that's the case it's just 1/4 inch.
