Default new tires

I just got some new tires, 30 inch tires. I don't recall what kind, I'll have to look later. Anyways they look awesome, and work rather well when off-roading. Only problem is that whenever I hit a bump hard or the suspension flexes alot something in the front end rubs on the tires. I'm not sure what it is. Is there anything I can do to fix this without getting a lift? -thanks in advance-

It's probably rubbing the sway bar. As far as fixing it, you can probably adjust the steering stop, keeping the wheel from going that far.

It rubs when the wheel is straight too. I dont think its the sway bar just because of that. Sorry if i didnt put that in my last post.

probably the the inner fender, try putting the car up on jackstands, then put the jack under on of the front wheels and jack it up til it hits, then you'll know for sure what its hitting.

Ok, i raised it up on the jacks but I can't get the suspension to flex enough to see what it is rubbing against. It looks like the inside/upper fender is what is rubbing the tire though.
