2000 Mustang

Hey I'm new to this please bear with me. I'm not sure where I'd post this. I have a 2000 mustang gt convertible last month I had an accident. I was almost rear ended by some idiot that can't drive in the rain. Well when he swerved into my lane I hit the brakes a little to hard losing control of my car. I hit the curb hard causing my rear tire and rim to break off. It's been a month and I finally got my baby fixed but I'm having some concerns. Before my mechanic changed my rotor he told me that the axle is fine no damage. He added the new rotor and tire, but when he put the rotor on it seemed to big I toldvhim b it didn't look right and he tells me no its supposed to be like that, that I wouldn't now very much because I'm not a mechanic and because I'm a female. I test drive the car and now I'm hearing some scraping in the rear I bring it to his attention and tell him that my tire is tilted outward like this \ . So he repeats what he said earlier. I got mad and told him to leave without paying him.
How bad is the damage? What do I need to do? I have pictures of the accident but not of the repairs he did I will add those later today.

When you snap a pic, please take one of both rear wheels, and then take a worm's eye view (close to the ground as you can get) pic of the rear so we can see both rear tires.

Hitting a curb hard enough to bust an aluminum wheel requires a lot of force. There is a possibility that the parts the tech replaced are perfectly fine. However, there are a lot of suspension and drive train parts that can be still damaged.

Does te car shimmy in the rear when you drive?

I would put it on an alignment each and get measurements. If you do that post a pic of the measurements.

Your axle tube may not be bent. But the actual axle shafts very well may be. That's where I would start. And that mechanic was not a mechanic. He was a con artist.
