Inexspensive way: Adjust the steering stops.
Expensive way: different offset rims and wider flares, etc.

It will probably not require much change to the steering stops and you will not loose much turning radius. All you have to do it adjust enough so the tires do not rub. May be different amounts on each side. Just enough to keep contact away. Good thing to check/adjust anyway. Doesnt cost a thing!

They are on the knuckles. You will see them from the front near the bottom. They look like bolts sticking out and facing the middle of the jeep. What I would do first is spray them with some PB Blast or similar (rust breaking spray) and let them soak for a day or two. Just to make sure they don't snap off like all old bolts that havent moved for a long time. Then just adjust them outwards untill it stops the contact of the tires on the springs.

Good luck
