Anyone else have this problem with their wheels?

Rear passenger side wheel is about 3/4 to an inch further in the fender well than the drivers rear. I checked the alignment of the bed and its fine. It seems like that wheel has an extra inch of backspacing, but it doesnt. Anyone else?

Nope.

I pretty certain mine are centered perfectly...being off center like that doesn't sound 'normal' at all.

Weird.

What was your reference point when you check the alignment of the bed?

Give your rear suspension a good lookover.

Do your front tires look ok?

This is normal. The track width Is wider.

But to the OP you have a problem. Why not switch the tires to opposite sides? Then you will know if Its the wheel or the axle being off center.

Maybe the fenders moved and not the axle?
