    Front or back? Are you sure the steering wheel is straight?
    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

    my truck is the same way - but the passenger side sticks out farther. You'd never notice it on my truck with stock wheels - even with the larger tires. when i put my new wheels on (not with ideal offset and backspacing), the other 3 are very close to flush with the fenders, while the right rear is almost exactly flush - sticking out just that little bit more. it doesnt bother me personally though because mine is only maybe 1/4 to 3/8" difference.

    That's what I thought you meant. Bumper might be on crooked. Mine is, never bother to fix it.

    i guess i misread the post then... like said above, it might be your bumper. if not, i think something being that far out would cause serious driveability issues.
