Default Upper control arm tire rub

Hi guys,

So I have had this leveling kit and tire combo on for a few weeks now and love the set up, though since day one, it has rubbed a bit at full lock. I assumed it was in the fender but I decided to investigate some more... What I found was it was touching anywhere in the fender, where it was hitting though was in the upper control arm! Even with the wheels straight there is NO room between the tire and control arm.

My question being here, how safe would it be to install 1/4 inch spacer on this truck?

Tires are 305/55/20

1/4" spacers is what I had to run on my tires also due to the same reason, never had a issue with them, ALOT of guys here run that spacer for same reason, just make sure you get hub centric ones or the hub centric rings to help line everything up, if not just take your time lining it all up and your fine. I would get it done asap, if you run low air pressure on your tire it will rub even more
