Default Tire hits leaf spring

When turning sharply on my 89 samurai he insides of my tires hit the leaf springs. What can I do to prevent this? The tires I have on are 31/10.50/r15

What is your rim size and the more importantly, what is the backspace?

Wheel Technical Information

With stock Samurai axles, you are probably going to need about 2.5" of backspacing. If your wheels have 4" backspace, then a 1.5" wheel spacer may be needed to push your wheels out further. There are no set rules on this as a lot of different factors come into play.
