you could go closer, but then you don't have any room for things to move around for when the rear axle twists when hitting a steep driveway approach at a weird angle or something..
and you might want to check to see how much (if any) the inner wheelwell of the body sticks out past the frame rail.

The tire is going to be closer to the inner fender on the body in places than it is on the frame. All I do is make sure any sharp edge on the wheel well is rolled in so the tire can't catch on it and it will be ok. It won't hurt a thing for it to rub a little at body twist in and out of driveways.
