Hi everyone I have a question I put outlaws tires on my 2020 polaris 450 and noticed that the left side tie rod was rubbing on the tire but had space on the right side do you think its a ball joint or something else and I put 2 inch spacers

Did you keep the stock rims or changed the wheels and tires?

Ball joint has noting to do with this.

TRE bolts direct to strut.
Wheel bolts to hub to which sits in wheel bearing and retained by axle.

Severe bearing play can cause wheel to lean.

What wheel are you using?

If you don’t see anything put other wheels back on if you have them, remove spacers, and take a look. That should rule out any front end part if it was fine before you swapped wheels! On a side note, any rubbing on the rears?
