tire sticks out

I put some 325/65r18 on my truck.
Factory wheels, no leveling kit.
the left front tire sticks out 2" further than the rest.
Why? It drives me nuts, so nuts that if It's not an easy fix these tires will come off and go back to factory.
Options please.

I know if I put level kit on it, I can get the kit with trac bar relocator kit if that'll fix the problem.

Thanks.

Re: tire sticks out

The driver side tire sits farther outboard to clear the coil spring. It was just less notisable with the stock tires.

Re: tire sticks out

hell if you think you have it bad, look at how ugly some of the new chevrolets can get when the owner puts on aftermarket wheels and doesnt compensate in the back for it.

It it's just one side... You might have an issue. Especially if it's really 2"...

Re: tire sticks out

I had the same problem with my 07.My drivers side tire stuck out a full inch after I put my aftermarket wheels and tires on.Ford said that it was within specs and wouldn't do anything about it.

I couldn't stand to look at my truck...It drove me crazy.I ended up paying out of pocket to have my cab moved over towords the drivers side to cover more of the tire.It's dead center now.
