Front driver side wheel not centered


Dec 21, 2015
New York
I am having an issue with the driver side rubbing when I turn the steering. I have had this issue for quite some time now and it seems to get worse. I spoke to service last year and was told the caster is off causing this issue. I have received 2 alignments at the service center and I still have the issue.

I did a simple finger measurement at the front and rear of the driver side front wheel and saw a huge difference. The passenger side is centered, but the driver side seems way off!

I thought it was an offset issue with my aftermarket wheels, but it is not, because the stock rims rub too.

Does anyone know what would cause this and possible fix?
