You should be fine at about an inch and a half. I know mine is similar and I have never had a problem with toe or heel drag.
With your boots strapped in tilt your board until the toe or heel of your boot touch the floor. This will give you an idea of how far over you will have to be leaned to get drag.

Just to be sure, be certain that you are weighting the sidecut when you are testing. Here is the whole process:

The Boarder's Blog - Snowboard Width - Huh?

Once mounted, the best way to test is to put your (tightly laced) boots into your bindings and strap them in tightly. It is important that you have the heel pulled all the way back into the bindings heel cup or the test won’t help. On a carpeted floor place your board flat on its base. Kneel behind the heelside edge and lift that edge so that it rests on your knees and so that the toeside edge is angled down into the carpet. Now press down with both hands using firm pressure, one hand on each of the boots. This will compress the board's sidecut and simulate a turn on hard snow. You can change the angle of the board on your knees to become progressively steeper and you will be able to see at what angle you will start getting toe drag. You will want to repeat the test for your heelside as well. If you are not getting drag at normal turn and landing angles, then you are good to go.

Awesome, just checking. That setup will be fine. That test factors in boot bevel, binding lift, etc, and is a lot more accurate than a straight overhang measurement. It doesn't mean that you will not notice any drag in certain snow conditions, just that it will be minor and acceptable.

I'm trying to center my boots but having some difficulties. I've moved my stance from 22 in to 21in. There is more overhang on the toe side and i have the bindings as far back towards the heel as they can go. anyone have some pointers?

Do the bindings have an adjustable heel cup? Could you post a few pictures of the disks, and both sides of one of the bindings? You should not have to choose the incorrect stance width to get the correct centering (if that is what you meant).

Thanks!

i rode the exact same setup this past weekend at a burton demo.

154 custom v rocker with size M purple cartels and my size 9.5 32 lashed boots...i had it at reference stance with +21/-6 riding goofy. im 5'6" 160ish lb.

it was the best ride of the season so far. So i dont see how with similar stats it would make a difference.
