Default wheel and control arm clearance

Hi guys,

I am hoping to ask for some guidance on an issue I am having. I received some wheels and tires and wanted to try them out on my 1977 k5 blazer. I did not realize how close the control arms come to the wheels.

The control arm hits the new rim/wheel so bad I can barely get the lugs to pass through the holes.

This is something im not familar with and was hoping to get some guidance on what I would need to do fix something like this to use bigger tires.
