I agree rotate the tires as a first step. If it does or doesn't follow the tire will tell you something.

Are you saying that the wheel and tire stick out more? Like if there was a spacer between the wheel and the hub? Or is it shifted more forward or upward in the wheel well?

Or does it look like an issue with camber, caster, or toe?

Just trying to clarify because your first post has me a little confused.

I wasn't able to rotate the wheels, so I did the next best thing, which was take my Winter wheels and put it beside my car, it is the same on both sides.
That's not what I was talking about. If you take the wheel in question and move it to another location and the gap issue goes with it, that tells us it had to do with the wheel. If the gap issue stays in the same place, then we know that it doesn't have to do with the wheel.

The only alignment adjustment in the rear is toe, so if something is a little bent, I could see the toe adjustment pulling the wheel forward to compensate.
