rear tires, axel issue or question

so I got new tires today, and got home and noticed that the rear tires were different as far as sticking out from the fenders. The passenger side rear sticks out about 1/2 inch past the fender and the driver side is flush with the fender. I didn't notice this with the old set of tires but with the new it is obvious, any issues as what it could be. the wheels are all the same with same back spacing and I will go out to make sure the tires are the same. I bought the wrangler dura trac tires, 31x10-50x15.

Weird is all I can say.

but on another not, the tires look and drive great

You need to check your rear track bar.

its a bar with a bolt to the axel and to the uniframe holds it in place. keeps it from doing what it is now.

A. track bar is gone or broken off. B. bushings a gone. C. vehicle has been lifted inproperly. Your going to want to look at your control arm bushings after it must have a ton of stress on them wobbling back and fourth.
