Look where the hub is in both photos. I doubt that there is anything out of sorts with the OP's car.

I'm not sure, photos are not the most precise ways of making diagnosis... the blue car certainly calls for a careful check imho.

but I have seen cars where clearly the wheel arches were significantly altered, both in "length" and shape, by a hasty grafting of a repair panel.
