Default 35ís on stock 20ís rubbing issues help needed

Iím sorry if this topic has been beaten to death, but I couldnít not find an answer for my specific issue, i just got 35s on my factory 20s and they bearly rub on the control arms and i wonder if some one has run the same set up how were they able to get rid of the rubbing. Would a 1 inch spacer get rid of it?

-bilstein shocks lifted to the highest click 2.1 inch
- bfg ko2 35/12.5-20

here is couple of pictures

Just at full lock, or rubbing all the time?
Mine rub the sway bar and lower control arm at full lock, when pulling into a tight parking space. It's not hurting a thing, as long as it isn't doing it while driving down the road.

Spacer will fix that. Not sure what size but donít think you need anything more than a 1 inch for sure

rubbing at full lock only , and yeah i checked closely they are rubbing on the sway bar as well. Any specific reason on why you didnít fix the rubbing or its just not significant ?

It isn't hurting a thing. The sway bar and control arm is a smooth surface, so it's not like it is grinding away at the sidewall. Like I mentioned, it's not like I'm going 55mph down the road, and they are rubbing. I would fix that. The slow turn into a parking spot just makes a little noise.
Watch what spacers you buy. Make sure they are hub centric, and make sure you have enough threads left on your studs.
