tire rub!! with 31" tires!

I just bought a set of 31x10.5 bf goodrich land terrain tires. I really like the way the look compared to my old 215/75/15 radial long trail tires. the only thing is that when i turn the wheel all the way to the right or left... the tire rubs not on the fender of on the body, but it looks to be rubbing on a part of the frame. is there any way to fix this? Once i noticed this... i started being very cautious taking turns. if it helps any... my new tires are mounted on my factory 15x7 rims. please help me before i mess up my brand new tires!!!!
