Default 2011 F-150 Platinum 4x4

I have a 2011 platinum 4x4 with the 5.0L in it. I recently put a rough country 2.5" leveling kit on it. Recommended tire size to run is 35x12.50r20 on factory wheels. Went to mount an balance tires put them on and the shop called and said the tires were rubbing the upper control arm and don't fit. Any suggestions on what I should do I want to keep my factory wheels on with the 35s. What can I do to make them fit?

If its rubbing on the control arms you might need a narrower tire. Not much you can do with that minus a lift kit. But im no expert, just my 2 cents
