Do you have over sized tires installed? The only solution is to put narrower or shorter tires on if you installed tires that are too big. What size do you have?

If u do have wider than stock tires on ur rig look into getting wheel spacers for them that should cure the problem now if u have stock tires on it I think it would be safe to assume that u may have a bad wheel bearing now if it is the wheel bearing that is bad change both because if one is bad it will not be long and the other side will be going out

Wheel spacers put extra stress on wheel bearings.

That is why they make heavy duty bearings

A short wheel spacer would work, but anything over about 1/2 " would bother me. Proper sized tires and wheels is the best way to prevent tire rubbing.
