Cool Tires rubbing on control arm

Hey Guys.
I have a 2012 Tacoma 4x4 TRD with a 2.25 inch level kit installed.

I put XD Monster 18x9 with 275/70/18 Cooper Zeon LTZ wheels on. Now I have a rubbing problem. When at full lock they rub against the control arm and squick.

I'm guessing I need spacers but not sure how big I would need to fix this. Also I have about 2.5 inches from the front bumper to the tire.. Not sure if putting the spacers on will make the tire hit the front bumper or not and have to trim it.

Would I be better off going to 275/65/18 and getting 1/2-3/4 inch spacers and not trim the front bumper or would I still have to??

Can anyone help me out here ???

Thanks.
