check the stops. it sounds like your wheels are going a little farther in a turn than they are supposed to.

I know this is an old post, but wanted to reply in the event someone else encounters the same issue and tries searching for an answer as I did. I purchased a 2000 Dodge Dakota 4WD a couple months ago. Soon after starting to drive it, noticed a noise coming from the front-end anytime wheels were turned pretty close to full left or right. While investigating, it could be seen that inside edge of rims were contacting tie rod ends. Quite baffling since they are factory alloy rims. After quite a bit of head scratching, figured out that sometime in its past, both tie rod ends had been replaced and were installed on the wrong sides! There is a slight curve or relief in the tie rod end that provides clearance when the wheels are turned fully left and right. This relief should face front. However on my truck they faced back, which meant no clearance and the resultant interference with rims. I almost resigned myself to having to use wheel spacers and longer lug bolts, but was having a hard time accepting there wasn't a logical answer to my dilemma. Glad I didn't give up and hope this is helpful to others with the same problem.
