Front tires rub leaf springs - need solution

I got an 03 f250 with a 10 inch lift on 40x14.50 tires on 20x10 fuel hostage wheels. They rub my springs pretty bad when trying to make even the slightest kind of tight turn and the sound they make when they rub is even worse than them actually rubbing. My question is should i stay with this tire and wheel setup and try to get some 6061 billet aluminum 2 inch spacers? (I'm not sure about going that route though because of what i heard about spacers, and if they will even help the rubbing issue much at all.) or go down to some 38x15.50 toyos with a 20x14 wheel that i believe has an offset so hopefully would push the tire away from the springs. So long story short should i go with the 2 inch spacers or go for the 38s?

Spacers will be fine. The wheel bearings are the scary part. The will wear out faster.
