99.5 with 05 18's rubbing

Ok, so I picked up some 18's off a guy that took them off his 05. Now I have some tire rub on the inside of my springs. So, what is the best most inexspensive fix? Smaller tire or level kit. I am currently running the stock tire at a 275/70R18 if I went with a 265/70R18 would this fix my tire rub problem or would I just be better off with the 2in leveling kit.

Also I am new to this. What all is involved with installing a leveling kit?

You need 2 inch wheel spacers front and back. The 05 and upo wheels have 1 7/8 more back spacing then the 99-04 wheels

don't turn all the way you can do wheel spacers but for what it might cost for hub centric spacers, you might be better off sell the wheels and getting ones with the right back spacing for your truck.
