Default Ugh, 35s are rubbing

Here's a link that pretty much describes my set-up

I'm having rubbing issues. Not terrible, but definitely annoying. It does not rub at all when I turn right, but when I turn left it will rub once in while, depending upon the incline of the road (inclining up is fine, the rubbing occurs when the road inclines down). The rubbing is on the back side of the fender. A picture is below. I've already hammered it down as much as possible.

My question is, should I try getting wheel spacers to attempt to resolve this problem? My backspacing is 4.5". I realize none of you can say with any certainty "Yes, spacers would definitely work and you'll never have rubbing again," but I'd appreciate any thoughts on the subject. Is it worth spending the money to give them a shot? If you were me, what size spacer would you try?
