Cool Tire rubbing

Hi,

My recently purchased 1999 Wrangler Sahara, came with brand new 31x10x15 Goodrich Rugged Terrain tires. This would not have been my choice of tire, as I am doing mainly roadwork. Anyway I've got them and they are too expensive to consider changing. My problem is that when I turn full lock, the inside back edge of the tires rub on the chassis; is this normal? they seem to be just too wide. Although I hate the idea of reducing my turning circle, is there some way of adjusting the steering stop to avid this problem.

Rubicons come brand-new from the factory with that size, you only need to adjust the steering bolt stops with a washer as explained at Jeep Steer Stop Adjustment.

The other option you have to add some Wheel Spacers to push the tires away from the frame/tub a little more. Some people like the wider stance you get with the spacers and others don't. Adjusting the steering stops is the free way to stop it from rubbing but spacers are another option.

Let me know if you'd like a quote on some spacers!
