Are the tires the correct size for the vehicle? Is this a new problem that has suddenly begun? Does there appear to be any issue with the positioning of the tire when the vehicle is steered straight ahead? Has this vehicle recently experienced any rough roads or potholes? There could be something like a bent control arm if everything else seems normal.

Wheels are the right size. Hit a big curb. All my other wheels are straight. Just that one is cocked out and back to where it rubs. And nothing seems to be bent but my tie rod can be turned back and fourth a little bit dont know if thats good or bad

My bravada also rubs with my 22 inch tires i even cut some metal it drives fine staight but the front tires if i hit pot hole or sharp turn it rubs....someone told me to get a 2in lift kit but i was hopeing there would be cheaper idea.
