Question Rubbing help

My dad has a 2000 f250 SD. He has 285x75r16 on oem wheels. When he turns hard to the right the passanger front tire rubs just barely on the rear part of the springs. What can be done to correct this? What has me confused is the driver side front tire doesn't rub at all.

Has he ever checked to see if his axle is centered? I don't think 285s on stock wheels should rub the leaf spring at all.
