How are you, Im running 32 X 11.5 with a 3in suspension lift in a 97 Sport and they are rubbing. Im thinking about either going with a small body lift so I can get a taller tire but somethin in the 10.5 range. Is this going to help me out. I just dont want any rubbing and I dont want to go smaller. Anyone know anything?

Where are they rubbing? Do they rub on your control arms when you are turning? Do they rub on the fenders when you are wheeling? There are things you can do to correct anyone of those things. Just need to know what's going on.

And welcome to the board. :D

what he said ^^ we need more info. if its rubbing when turning then you need wheels with less backspacing or spacers.

if its rubbing the fenders then you could get bumpstop extensions (if you don't already have them) or you could get a little more lift like a 1" BL like you mentioned.

Longer Bumstops if they are hitting fenders.

Rubbing

The tires are rubbing on the frame rails that run back to the fire wall. as long as I dont make a hard turn they wont rub but if I pull hard im hitting everytime. thats the only spot they are rubbing though. thanks for the help and the welcome

On the bottom inside of the steering knuckles you will see a bolt that looks like it's got some weld on it about half way down. That is called a steering stop. Un bolt those bolts and stick a washer or two on them and then bolt back in. That will limit your turning radius just a hair and keep the tires from rubbing on the control arms at full turn.

Only other option is as the others say and get new wheels.
