Jk wheel on tj rubbing backspacing?

Just got stock 2013 jk wheels with 1.25" spacers... I Installed a 3.25" RC lift and now the tires are rubbing when I turn sharp???? I've been reading about the steer stop... And backspacing... Anyone know what the backspacing is on these jk tires and how bad will if screw up my steering radius if I mess with the steer stop??

I run aftermarket jk wheels with the spacer and they work fine, but the aftermarket wheels probably have 1" more BS. If you adjust the steering screw it will affect your steering radius. My suggestion is to just not turn the wheel all the way when you hear it rub. Then if you are in a real tight spot and need to turn more you can let the tire rub. I did that for a couple years before I got new wheels.
