    All,
    Does anyone know if wheel spacers will help with the tire rub problem I am having?

    What is the issue? Looks like there’s curb rash from what the picture shows.

    Tires are 265/40R22's? Can't help you but be more specific on the problem, are they rubbing the top of the fenders and quarter panels? Just the fronts rubbing when turning? Can you give the specs on the wheels? Width and offset?
    I think spacers will just make it worse since they would put the wheels and tires further outside the fenders and quarter panels.

    no spacer is going to help that curb rash if that's what you are talking about. other than that, I see no fender rubs on the tire.

    The 265/40-22 are too tall, they should be 265/30-22 at least according to the tire plus sizing chart I checked. Probably be ok on the rear but no the front.

    I run 265/30-22 fronts and they're fine! Can see that you're fronts are going to make contact when you turn.

    I meant the 40's might be ok on the rear but definitely not the front.
