Take it off and reinstall the wheel on the bike.

Is it correctly inserted into the dropout? is the wheel out of tru at that point? those are main things that will make a wheel do that.

Do this:

Prior to installation, shift to the highest gear (smallest cog) in the back. Make sure the wheel is centered in the frame and not rubbing like your pic.

If you spend a lot of time/miles on roads, then smoother tires would be something to think about changing over to.
