Rear sits higher on one side??

so i noticed a bit of rubbing after i installed some new wheels, but it coming from the right rear. after work today i came out and noticed the driver side rear has about 1 finger gap, but the right side has literally no gap and the tire is actually slightly tucked. could this be an issue where it needs to be taken in and balanced?

When I had my springs installed I had the car professionally aligned. Since then all I did was put new wheels on

Could putting new wheels on cause the car to need a new alignment? Or balancing?

oh. i cant really think of anything on a new wheel/tire combo that would make a half inch difference other than it having a different size tire which would be ridiculous LOL

Funny enough I actually checked. And they are the same tire size. Hmmm
