body not centered

Just got new tires 275/50/17. Nitto450's. They are a hair wider than stock. Combine that with the fact it seems the car body is not centered over the rear axle so the right tire looks like it could conceivably it the rear quarter. Is this a common issue? Is it possible to shift the body over 3/4"?? Thx

re- search... Cool I'll see what I can find thx.

Love the tires! VERY quite very smooth ride do not notice any problems cornering hard. But... I'm not racing the thing either. They do exactly what I wanted. $750 installed too. Will post some better pics tomorrow in a more appropriate thread.

I've been running 275 on our car since 1996, it's a 94. Much better than the 255's that it had stock.
