Steering Stops with Larger Tires

I just replaced some P225/75/15's with Pirelli Scorpion A/T's (30x9.5/15) on a '95 YJ Rio Grande. I went with 30's because I heard that 31's would rub on full steering. However, I found that the Pirelli's barely touch the bracket holding the leafs together (what are those called anyway?) when I crank the wheel fully over. Right now my fix is to not turn the wheel to it's full swing (not even a quater turn less is needed to make it not touch). However I'm thinking that in the future I'll install a lift (2.5" - 3") and run some bigger tires, will I have to fix the steering stops then to prevent rubbing?
also:
I thought 30's weren't suppose to rub? does it depend on brand?
and:
Does anyone have any feedback about Pirelli's? I can't say I've heard good or bad about them the guy at the store said they were good and I got them for over $30 cheaper then BFG A/T's each.

Thanks

Pirelli's are good for the money, but as compared to the BFG's, the BFG's have a better overall design(for example a 3 ply sidewall, instead of a 2 ply sidewall)

Thanks, I was wondering about the difference between them. I got a pretty good warrenty plan through the company though (Americas Tire Store) they said they would replace them if I took any road or trail damage and he specifically mentioned ripping up the sidewall or taking a gash from a rock or street curb.
Do you have any thoughts about the rubbing though?
