I Want to Keep My 31's!!!

I've got 31" by 10" or 10.5" tires on my otherwise stock 98 TJ. Problem is that when I've got the steering wheel cranked all the way left or right, I get a decent amount of wheel rub. Is there any way to fix this without going down a size? I can't afford a lift, so I was wondering if there was some other way to fix the problem until later, without switching tires...

Where exactly is it rubbing, if you don't want to adjust the steering stops (loss of turning radius) then maybe you could trim away what ever is rubbing.

I'm sure it's rubbing on the LCA's. I don't think he wants to be trimming on those. All you should have to do is add like one washer and that should take care of it. You won't even notice the loss in radius. Troy.
