how much backspacing can i go without rubbing fenders?

i currently have 265/75/16 michelin ltx at2 on the stock alloy wheels. i want a wider stance with new rims and i know that the lower the bs the wider the wheel sticks out, but just how low can i go without rubbing? i believe the stock has 4.5 bs and i was thinking of going either 3.75 or 4 inch? minor trimming would be ok thanks! also i know many steel wheels will not fit, besides the wheelers, but will all alloy wheels fit? looking to stay with 16x8
