95 YJ and bigger tires question

I have a stock suspension YJ. it has 16" 5 spoke alum rims on it right now. Bought that way. I have found that on hard turns the tires hit the left springs. I have the original 15" jeep rims. If I go back to them what size tire can I go to and not rub springs? Or will o have to do spacers no matter what? If I go bigger then stock size.

If your just going keep your stock suspension, then the max I would say to go is a 31" even with that you may rub a little if you turn real hard, or even if you go at enough of an incline you can rub then on the rear fender

You can get a body lift and go bigger than 31. You can get them for about $100.

Body lift would require disassembling all the body mounts and replace with new taller ones? I had to replace/rebuild 3 body mounting points when I fixed the frame. None could be unscrewed. I had to break the bolts or cut them. Dont know if I have the energy to redo all of them.

I've got P235/75R/15, and the door sticker says P205/75R/15. I don't rub at all.
