Buggy tire and rim combo

Just wanted to know what every body thinks about the possible way we might try mounting some tires for the front of our 1 car. Seeing as the 35'' tires are working better for us we want to fade out our 33''(which we run on the 16x4's with no problem) front tires and go to a 315/75/16 front (roughly 35x11.50). We are running 1 set of these 35's on the 16x4 centerline beadlocks with a 5/8'' spacer bolted in the middle for added strength. We have had no problems so far. The question I am trying to answer is if a 35x11.50 is too much tire for a regular 16x4 non-beadlock centerline with no center spacer, just the regular rim? The spacer works nice for our first set but is very time consuming as far as spares go. We are running the goodyear mtr race tire on there. Do we just have to experiment and see how it goes or...? Thanks for any help.

We are running a 285/70/16 (not to sure on the metric size) same as a 33x 10.50 with the 16x4 centerline if that helps. Same goodyear mtr.
