Left Front Tire Rubs???

Just had 31/10.5/15 GY DuraTracs put on my stock 02 TJ Sport rims, no lift. The front left tire rubs at full lock turning left, no problems on right. Rubbing looks like it's coming from the arm looking brace that runs from front to back. Anyway, is this a common issue? Do I need spacers for the front? All the research I did I didn't think I'd have an issue. Not too much of a big deal. Don't go around driving at full lock 24/7... Looking at putting on a 2" BB in near future. Any input would be great. Thanks.

There are stops on either side that you can put washers under to keep it from turning as much and rubbing. Either do that, deal with it, or get new wheels with a lower offset!

Check this out for more details: http://4x4xplor.com/steerstop.html
