2004 ZX3 hatch suspension question

So I looked at my wheels yesterday (only had the car 3 days) and noticed the passenger side wheel/tyre seemed closer to the front of the wheel well than the drivers side. Both seemed closer to the front of each of their fender wells instead of being centered in the fender well. I took a tape out and measured it, the drivers side has 2.5in behind the tyres edge for clearance between it and the fender well, the front of the drivers side has half an inch LESS clearance between it and the fender well. The passenger side has a different clearance, in front it has 1.75in in back it has 2.75in....is this a problem with the rear alignment? This car has only had a front fender bender so it has never been in a hard crash. I was told by the original owner it only needed an alignment sometime fairly soon so is that it? It has me a little worried because I am just about to buy a set of wheels and tyres in a 16in with 205 45 16 tyres and don't want them to hit anything.

Well, I have had a look around on the net and every picture I see of this car is like mine. They all have the tyres closer to the front of the Wheel Well than the back of the wheel well so I feel better now! I am still a little worried mine is slightly different between the two sides though. Must be rear alignment!! !
