    My tires are oversized and the tread on the side of the tire rub on the upper control arm and I am wanting advice on fixing this without replacing the tires.

    Wheel spacers are the lowest-cost solution, though they increase the tire's scrub radius, so you may need to trim the fender flares a bit more.

    Rims with 4.5" back spacing is ideal but spacers will work with some rubbing (depending on tire size) as a side effect!

    Im running 285/75R16 on my truck with a 3in OME lift. I was rubbing on my UCAs pretty good and ended up getting a set of Spidertrax 1.25 spacers off a member here. I do recommend it! You will however end up having to cut away at your inner fender well which to me wasnt an issues as its just a minor piece of plastic nobody will really see.
