Default Rear Passenger Tire Not Center

Hey guys I need some help, I got my car lower on progress springs and KYB shocks. I don't know if it was like this before or not but my rear passenger tire is not center. Meaning the whole tire is closer to the rear bumper/fender. But my driver side is perfect. I took it to the dealership already to get an alignment and the rep said maybe because I lower the car my frame shifted. I don't know but it looks bad.

Maybe when you mounted it it didn't sit right on the disc. Check to make sure the disc is sitting properly on the hub.

Thanks I'll check that.one more thing I forgot to mention is that the tire is leaning toward the inside of the fender too. So it makes it seem a lot lower too. I can't put my hand thru the top of the tire and fender, but on the other side I can.

I just checked mine and neither of them are like that. Thats a strange issue. I cant even begin to imagine what would cause that. Like George said check your spring...

If your tire is mounted correctly then one of the arms holding the hub or the lower rear control arm is bent. No other reason why the tire would be shifted u less it hit something and one of the components is bent.

Have the car lifted and look at both sides to compare

No that's the weird thing it doesn't shake or anything. it did pull to the right before the alignment, now not much. unfortunately I don't have any pictures and I don't remember how it looked with the stock rims and suspension.

No not at all. You might want to have that checked out...

I don't think it has been in a accident. I got it from carmax. I guess I'll take it apart then and see what's going on.
