Hello,

Around August, I wasn't paying attention and ran my passenger wheel into a curb. Totally destroyed my aftermarket passenger side wheel and tire. About a month later, I noticed the passenger side wheel was around a 1/4 inch closer to the inside of the wheel well vs the driver side wheel. Another thing I believe to be related to this is the fact that my steering wheel now has to be slightly turned clockwise to drive perfectly straight. Does my car just need an alignment? Being pretty particular about my setup and how it looks, my OCD is driving me crazy because the wheel on the passenger side has a slightly larger gap between the outside of the wheel and the lip around the wheel well.

Would definitely start with an alignment check... a good shop/tech while checking it should notice if any other item(s) are out of spec/need attention.
I’ve been trying to find a shop that will do the alignment but I run into 1 of 2 issues. 1. My car is too low to ride onto the lift. Or 2. The shop has a policy not to work on cars with a modified suspension setup. Really annoying.

Me too. Matter of fact heard that phrase just recently. I purchased a Lifetime Alignment from Firestone a few months ago, used it twice already and tried to use it this past Friday and was told my car was too low. Well it was that low both of the other times yall "did it" and he rambled on about modified components would void the "plan/warranty?" and they would never do that.

I ended up calling around and found a place about 30 minutes out. Not too bad of a drive.
