I think its time for some offset/deepdish wheels.

Try to change the wheels, because the offset of the stock wheels is not the correct one for bigger tires. The body lift won´t help, and a suspension lift also won´t help.

If it's the rubbing that bother's him, and not the loss of steering radius, you can adjust the stops for the steering, to eliminate the rubbing.

If you push the wheels further out, away from teh control arms (changing the backspacing), you'll start rubbing the rear of the fender lining.

FSM didn't give any clue as how to do this, though. I know people that have done it, but I haven't had to.

On my 97, the stops are threaded to move in or out, but the they are welded from the factory. I'd have to grind off or weld onto the existing stops.

I'd go with 16x8 wheels if you don't lift it.
Anything wider your gonna rub more than just the rear of the fender liner.
