Maybe you have different wheels on there? Take a tape and measure stuff to see it is actually pushed off center? Does it drive funny at all like that?

no they are the same wheels it was like that with my stock wheels. it drives fine and with the tires off you cant feel any slack in the axle shafts.

The plate is the part where the studs are pressed into, I bent mine on the right side. Have yet to still change it Take the wheel off and spin the axle and check it.
