Maybe the photography or my not enough coffee at insomnia thirty but is possible that strut is bent?
You're not the one...

OP - been hitting any pot holes lately? Had super low tire pressures? Running cheap tires with tons of sidewall flex? Or are there wear marks where the strut slides in to the steering knuckle indicating that the strut has been moving vertically?

Are you running camber plates and or LCA arms tipping the wheel inwards for tooo much negative camber? Those stock wheels and tire sizes should never rub unless it’s the above mentioned

Likely that the strut has slipped down in the wheel carrier. There is a tab on the back side of the strut that keeps it from being installed to low, but the tab is easily bent with a hard impact or jacking up the control arm with the clamping bolt loose.
