I noticed on a lot of tigers the right front wheel seams to be closer or sticks out past the wheel well. Vs left front?
Is this a common issue?
Causes?
Thanks

Haven't looked or measured...But, while backing/parking, the right tire does scrape the bottom front lip of the wing (fender) on mine. I have 185, 70R 13's on alloy wheels.

Really no real good reason for yours to do so! You could roll the lip edge where it rubs a tiny bit and eliminate some potential cracking of the valance later.

I run 195 55 15s on my SV Alpine V6 without any spacing problems.

A question posed might be your front shocks and what condition are they?
