We have the same need for articulation here as you would imagine. I don’t have any rubbing anymore. I removed my rear bumper and heated up and reformed the plastic on the inner fender well, behind the tire. Not much at all. That’s the only rubbing I experienced. The front is all taken care of with steering stops. Heres a couple pics of mine with the adjustment. A couple are with my 4 door. Same setup.

All these are at their max bumpstop and turned as tight as you can go. You can adjust more or less but I have put this thing is some crazy positions and it’s fined tuned and performs flawlessly.

A wider wheel will change the offset though. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. But it can lead to undesirable handling effects, and by putting the weight of the tire and wheel assembly further out from the ball joints it does add to the stress that is placed on them. AEV is one of the few wheel manufacturers who has taken this into account and their wheels have very little change to the stock offset, which keeps the scrub radius the same as stock when on a 35-37 inch tire. The steering angle inclination is 12 degrees and can't be changed. So a wide wheel with a large positive scrub will cause premature stress to the ball joints, and tie rod ends as it puts stress on both in different ways. And it can cause steering issues. We need to be careful when choosing wheels.
Yes the scrub radius is what many people do not understand...it causes more wandering potentially on the Highway and different handling as well as the increased stress...yeah my 37s are hard on my Nall joints but hey I wanted to minimize the stress by not adding spacers on top of that lol
