So I was doing some light wheeling today and hit a bump at about 5mph with the steering wheel and my tire rubbed my lower front control arm. Is this something to be that concerned about or just be careful at full lock? It does not run at full lock under normal street driving conditions, I'm guessing it was because my front coil was compressed.

I'm running a rock Krawler 2.5" lift with control arms. I am running these wheels

You've good backspacing on the rim but those tires have some tall blocks on the tread that wraps over the should that extend farther than other tires.

It probably rubs when you turn and stuff the tire in the wheel well since the wheels travel in an arc. You don't want to tear up the tires or the arm so be aware of this or adjust the turn stops by adding 1-2 washers.
