Exclamation help with passenger rim, sticks out.

I got these MSR rims and the front passenger seems to stick out an extra half inch or so.this can't be due to suspension. Yet the installers didn't say any was wrong the few time I brought it in to big o and to ford..
Driver good side

Passenger bad side

Pictures would really help. Sticks out from what or where? Is it a camber issue?

Have you tried swapping the wheels driver to passenger sides to see if the wheels maybe have a different offset? It was suggested to me with a similar issue (mine was with the rear wheels and is still unsolved though I'm hoping the complete suspension makeover I am almost finished with will help)

Kind of looks like you might have a little bit of positive camber on the passenger side. An alignment should straighten that out! Unless it is in the wheel. In that case I would imagine that you would have to send it back for a new one. Ether way an alignment shop should be able to tell you what is wrong.

maybe you got an odd wheel with a different offset, or the centerbore is too small, causing the wheel to not sit right

This. Has the car ever been in a wreck? Engine or trans issues that caused the front subframe to have to be removed?
