Rear tire alignment

Hey guys!

Anyone ever did a tire alignment? I just changed my rear tire, when reinstalled it i made sure the marks on the swing arms and the chain alignment bolts are exact.

When I stand far back and look at the tire it seems crooked, like its leaning towards the left side (not parallel).

Can this be that its sitting on a lift? Maybe the lift is making the frame seem crooked?

Thxs for any help.

Could your fender be "off"? Perhaps the bags are a bit at an angle?

As for the old tire, did the wear pattern indicate abnormal wear?
