One sided trouble.

Hey guys and gals. Having a little issue with my 2011 Sportsman 800. I bought new tires last week. 12x9x27’s. Everything fits except for the right front (if you’re looking at the bike). For some reason the right front tire rubs the tie rod end. I pulled the front wheels off, did a realignment, put them back on...same problem. I checked my ball joints, decided they were a little loose, so I changed them this evening. Put the tires back on and that tire is still rubbing. I have about 3/4” clearance on the left tire but the right one is right up against the tie rod. Any suggestions what could be causing the problem?

did you get just tires, or tires and wheels? if you got tires and wheels, is the offset on one different from the other? easy test, put the right on the left, & visa Versa. if the left now doesn't fit, you've got two different offsets.

No...just tires. I did buy the wheeler used though. So someone could have switched the wheels. I’ll try that tonight. The knuckle wasn’t bent...so I can mark that off. 👍🏻

Dumb question but was it rubbing with the old tires?

No it wasn’t. But they were stock, so smaller tires. The larger tire revealed the issue. The local Polaris dealership replaced a cv axle on that side...I wonder if there is a possibility they put a shorter axle in? That would change the pitch of the housing.
