Front axle

I think my front wheel is a little to close to the back of the fender. I rub everytime I turn the wheel. I'm thinking that axle is messed up. My question is if this is true what wheel size would fit the best

Why do you think the axle is messed up? Sounds like your current tire/rim setup is too large. What size are the rims and tires you are running with?

A new wheel won't help a bad axle.

Just jack the car up and look underneath it, take some pics and post me I'm sure we can spot something bent, it should be obvious with it sitting like that

It would also be a good idea to remove the wheel and the wheel well liner. Then we can easily see the damage. I am certain there is something wrong with the sub frame.
