Default Left tire rubbing...?

Well, a lot of people have bought the same soft 8s I did and had no issues.

My tires look fine, they drive fine, but when I make a somewhat sharp left turn it rubs on the plastic piece inside the fender well, but when I make a sharp right turn, the right tire doesn't rub, but the left tire will rub just a tad but not as much as if I would turn left.

Could this be the case of needing an alignment? For some reason it seems my right front tire is where it is supposed to be, and it seems the left front tire sits back just a little bit causing it to rub on turns. Not to mention it is loud as all hell. I get unneeded attention in parking lots : PP

cleburne red will become famous soon enough

I factory rims with 235/75/15s on them, and I'm getting about the same thing. At full lock to the right, the left tire will rub pretty hard against the sway bar. At full lock to the left, the right tire has plenty of room. I know I probably need an alignment, but I don't know if that would clear it up.
