32's rubbing ... just wandering

ok, Im sorry Im sure this has been asked over and over..I bought a 98 sport and it has factory wheels with 32 x 11.50 tires on it..Of course they rub pretty bad.. question is can you adjust the steering stops enough to stop the rubbing or would it make it impossible to turn and I would only be able to go straight???? cant afford wheels at this time but would like to be able to fix for now, thanks for any input

That's the spot that I would also be concerned with too. The factory wheels place a 32x11.50 tire's inside sidewall so close to the upper rear spring perch that it can rub, especially when the tire has been aired down for offroading when it gets fatter.

When you have a choice, buy American.
