tires rubbing springs

I put a Rough Country 4" lift on my 89 Jeep wrangler. The paper work said that I can put 33's on. I did find some used 33x12.5x15 tires to put on. I thought that when I put them on that they were going to work but they rub at the very limit of my steering travel. Is there something I can do outside of putting spacers behind my rims? Is there some kind of stop that I can put on the steering to keep it from going that last little bit causing it to took rub?

I actually ordered rims with back spacing. Someone else suggested steering stops.
