wheel spacers?

So I recently had a 6" lift with 37" tires installed. the problem is that my new rims have too much positive offset. The driver's side tire rubs on the radius arm when the steering is at full lock to the left. It has rubbed thru the paint on the radius arm. I'd like to put on 1" wheel spacers to set them out a little bit. This should be enough to stop the rubbing.

My questions is about the durability of wheel spacers. I tow frequently and offroad in the sand and snow a lot. I'm wondering if people have experience using spacers and if they've had problems breaking or wearing through.

As long as you keep the wheels torqued you will be fine. I have 2" spacers on the
rear and have not had any problems.Also make sure you have enough studs for
wheels and spacers.
