Frnt tires stick out wider than Rear tires

so I just bought this truck, only thing that is bugging me is the front tires stick out past the fender flare more than the rear tires. I started noticing that I see this on a lot of other trucks that have aftermarket wheels on a 4x4. So when your behind the truck looking at it, the front tires stick out more than the rear tires by about 1-2 inches.

So is there a spacer that can be used to equal out the width on the rears?

It's all of them, even the 6.7's. It started with the 6.4's because my 6.0 with rims didn't do it. It bugged me too but ya got to deal with it.

actually almost all 4wd have been that way for years, but on the old trucks the tires were farther under the body so you didn't notice as much.
