It might actually make you rub more by pushing the wheels out and increasing the arc they travel when turning.

TW member zombie runner was running 285s with 4.5"bs wheels and wheels spacers as well and he could barely turn.

There's an ongoing debate whether or not spacers hurt your truck just as much as wider tires do. Check 2nd gen discussion section. But IMO, if you are running 33s on 20s with proper bs you don't need spacers, if you run 16s with 4.5 bs I think a .5" spacer will do the trick and not put any (more) stress on your truck. 17s and 18s with proper bs will do just fine.

I have 265/70 17 tires on 17x8 wheels with 4.5 BS, also have 1.25" spacers and had some major rubbing issues. 1.75" lift with 5100s in the front.

Spacers will only greatly increase your rubbing issues.
