tire rubs

I own a tj 2003 4liter sahara, and I purchased the Skyjacker 2" budget boost with nitro shocks, and a set of Bf goodrich a/t 32x11.5x15. I kept my stock aluminum rims and at full turn the tire rubs.

Any suggestions to fix this, without changing rims.

Thanks

Get some spacers. But it'd prbabaly still be cheaper to get some black steelies.

will it not give too much stress on the spacer with the weight of the wheel and tire.

you only need to add 1-2 washers to the steering stops.
