Tire problems

I've been tire shopping, and had a guy tell me that most of his customers upgrade to 31 inch tires on their Wranglers, with no problems. I had a set of
31x 10.5s put on yesterday. They look awesome, but I later realized that when turning sharply, they rub. I really want to correct this problem, but I'm not what to do. Any thoughts?

Put some Washers here. i Think 3 is enough
That's what i did with mine. Of course it will reduce your turning radius, but i have 31x10.5 and never had any problem making a u-turn.

Can someone explain how that solves the problem? I can't wrap my head around it

It places the tires out farther away from the control arm so it doesn't rub... There is a site to go to to show you how it's done.. Can't find it though

It is your steering stop and by adjusting it out further your tires can't turn as sharp so they can't rub. You'll probably never notice the loss in you turning radius.

Thanks you guys. I put one washer on each side and it took care of the problem. I appreciate your help.
