drivers side tire rubs

i just replaced my worn out 32" A/T tires with 35" M/T's. i also had an alignment done at the same time.
the truck drives perfect but for some reason the front drivers side tire rubs on the back part of the fender when turning all the way to the left.
the passenger tire doesnt rub at all

i took some measurements and noticed the drivers side tire is about half an inch farther back in the fender than the passenger tire. the truck was never in any accidents.

how do i go about fixing this?

There might be a broken center bolt in the spring, that is what holds it in the center of the spring.

It's because your truck sags a little to the left because of the fuel tank sitting on the driver's side of the frame. It wears out the springs, mine does the same exact thing.
