3" Revtek Lift Question

Hi, I bought a 3" Revtek Supsension lift for my 1998 Toyota Tacoma Ext. Cab and I am wondering what size tire to put on. I'm going with a 33" tire, I called revtek and they suggested going no bigger than a 33x10.5 with 4.5" of backspacing. Do you think I can get away with less backspacing to let the tire hang out a little more past the rims. I have 2" fender flares on right now.

Thanks in Advance

I think you are confusing "offset" with "backspacing" (they are opposite). The lower the offset, the more the wheel extends beyond the fender. The greater the backspacing, the more the wheel extends beyond the fender.
