    SRAM chainrings are good, you can try a different offset to see if it might help your chainline at the same time.
    or you can try a oval chainring offered by Absolute Black, Wolftooth, Oneup etc

    any narrow-wide in the correct offset would be fine. I have used raceface and absoluteblack.

    Could also try a 30t oval.

    I thought SRAM only made Eagle chainrings from 30 - 38t. I know that AB goes down to 28t and explicitly states that it works with Eagle, but I suspect that's true of the other manufacturers as well.

    I think the chainring doesn't have to be Eagle specific but maybe 28T is special. I use a 32T Non-Eagle chainring with my GX/X01 Eagle drivetrain just fine.

    You may be right.Wolf Tooth makes a 28t I think.

    Thanks for all the replies! Looks like I can get a Wolf tooth 3 mm offset on Amazon for $66. Im thinking I will probably will go with that unless something better pops up?
