Re: turning radius and bigger tires
When I got my jeep years ago, it had stock tires on it... no problem turning.
Then I put a set of 30x9.5s on it, and I did lose some turning radius... not much, but I had to be careful to keep the tires off the springs.
Then I got new rims that had a little better (+/- 3.5") backspacing.. and the rubbing went away. My next step was to go to a set of 33x12.5's on those same rims, and they didn't rub at all.
Now I have a nother set of wheels with 4" backspacing, and I am running 37x13's and although the Jeep doesn't drive currently... I have clearance lock to lock.
As long as you match your tires with correct rims you will not have a problem... but don't put 37's on your stock rims.
