Rubbing sound from my wheel wells

Hey there. Whenever i turn my wheels all the way to the right or left, there is a loud rumbling sound and it shakes my jeep. I have a 2000 TJ with a 2" lift and 31" BFG A/T. Are my tires just hitting my coils or is it an issue with my backspacing etc...?? Thanks for the help. Also, I want to get Cragar soft 8's (15x8) would this help or hurt the situation? Thanks again

Sounds like a backspacing issue. Tires are hitting when turned to full lock.

You can adjust your turn stops with,washers if I'm not mistaken.

I would check your sway bar links as well. The ball joints get old after a while and pop out causing a rubbing sound when turning the wheel all the way.

Tires can also rub on the sway bar itself. Or LCAs. Look for shiny spots on the sway bar and LCAs. Might be touching a bolt head on the inner fenderwells too.
