Stock Ravine rims have 5 1/2" backspacing and I've read frequently that 10.5's will rub (I'm going to the same size on my 04 LJ). I believe you can add some washers to your steering stop to fix this, or you can add spacers, or buy new rims with less backspacing. Just depends how much you want to spend.
If you can find a set of Rubi rims, they have 5" backspacing and can run 10.5's with no rubbing I think. They're also 16" rims.
Anyone who can confirm any of the above, feel free. This is just what I've found while researching the same issue.
