I'm rubbing

I searched around and couldn't find anything.
I've got 32/11.5 bf Goodrich KO2's on the stock 89' alloys.
They rub on the springs at near full lock. I've seen some guys say 31"/10.5 will rub also but hat's what I had before and they didn't rub on stock saggy springs. I've installed 4" springs since then.

My question is.. would 1" wheel spacers help?
I'm rather attached to the wheels so I don't want to go aftermarket. I also still have 75%+ tread left or else I would buy 31/10.5's again.

You can or you can adjust the stops.

That was my first thought. They're already out a good amount.
It's a pretty good bite on the springs. I can hold the Jeep still at idle and in drive just by turning the wheel.

Wide tires on "narrow" wheels cause a lot of sidewall bulge. You can address rubbing by going to wider wheels with the same backspacing, or adding spacers to decrease the backspacing, or going to a wheel with less backspacing, or running a tire with a smaller section width, or setting the stops out further. Your choice.

Thanks greese,

Looks like I got some options to think about.

Sounds like the spacers might work and I like cheap

Good spacers aren't really cheap and be very afraid of "cheap" ones.
I'd try extending the stops if you're after cheap & easy.
