Loud Rubbing Sound

i recently bought a used jeep wrangler (2017) with modifications to include a lift and some big tires and rims. I liked the way it looked. however, when i make a sharp turn (especially when I am trying to back up from parking) there is a loud sound; like the tires are rubbing against the car....i know i remember them saying that i have a 4" lift and i think i have some kind of short term warranty on that.....does anyone know if maybe the warranty on the lift would include this problem? The sales guy was really helpful at first but now that he made the sale i feel like he could care less....also the tires are pretty big..can't remember what they said but maybe like 35's? (whatever that means) and also i am wondering if this is really a big deal? or maybe i should just be careful when backing up?

Look around the wheel wells. Your going to find a nice shiny spot where your tires are rubbing. You can do one of 4 things.
1. Get spacers for the front wheels, not really recommended.
2. Replace the wheels with one of a better offset. $$$$$
3 Screw in the turn stops so the wheels won't turn far enough to rub. You lose turning radius but you already lost it.
4. Just live with it and don't turn the wheel that far... It's what I do
