Ok, sorry if this question rates a 10 on the dumbest question scale…

This morning when I was leaving for work I noticed that the driver’s side rear tire seems to stick out a little more than the passenger side. I didn’t have time to get out any verify this with measurements… But it would seem that it does stick out a little more than the passenger side.. Is this normal?? Or do I have an issue with the new rims and tires I had installed a couple months ago… FR500 18x10 305/35/18 Nitto DR on the rear, or is it an alignment problem as I also had the car lowered with HR Springs and added the polyurethane isolators, (the car was aligned after it was lowered)

Note: the car only has 2700 miles on it I hardly drive it, it spends most of the time under a cover and I had the cover off this weekend so I could move some things around in the garage and install the MGW shifter just haven’t had the time to put the cover back on..

Car is a 20003 Cobra

Any input would be greatly appreciated…

It's probably just the one tire's top side has more camber than the other and so you are being fooled.
2700 miles??? Get out and drive that BEOTCH, WTF.

First off check the tire pressue.

There is many reports of people having un even wheel heights and other wheel issues after the install of lowering springs. I think this is manly due to the fact that people don't install the springs in the same position at every wheel.

Again, the alignment could be off.

Was the car definitely sitting on level ground?

Tire pressure is ok

I don’t know if the shop install the springs in the same position at every wheel. Is there a way to check this???

Pull the wheels off and their should be a part number on the springs. Make sure the part numbers are in the correct position from side to side. Also maybe a ISO fell out or something to that affect.
