When I had the big ones on my 95, I had to have the offset on the front wheels "in' as opposed to the rears, and if I screwed up and put the rears on the front, I had that same problem. I cannot remember, but the difference was about an inch, I could turn almost lock to lock, I would just catch the rear outsides on the inner fender a smidge. with the rears on the front, I would have eaten the rear of the fenderwells in any sort of turn, these were 14.5x 37x15 s . wish I had written that offset down somewhere, but I have a bodylift only. I remember thinking WOW what a difference the offset made, the guy who did the measurements for me on that purchase moved away years ago, sorry. I had put the rears on the front first, and was quite diappointed with the fit, until I realized what I'd done. Looked terrific, but a true disappointment in the driveability, my ram is just not solid enuf for big tires, any flex in the front end really magnifies with big rubber.
