Question concerning Wheel Rub

Hey guys (or girls)! Had a quick question; Ive got the 4lug cobra R wheels and the front wheels are too wide so they keep rubbing on the inside of the wheel if I turn too far. Ive been trying my best not to turn too far, but I feel that there may be a better solution. Any ideas?

They make stops for the steering rack to limit your turning, or you can grind the control arm a little for clearance.

Yea I was thinking maybe spacers. Ive never heard of the steering rack limiters tho. Which would be better/cheaper? I have a feeling that if I get spacers I'll have to roll my fenders :/

You can probably get them directly from ford part #N804842-S washers.

yea rack limiters just keep the wheel from turning that far~ if you know the limit you generally just only turn it to that
