    Hey there! So today I noticed that my rear wheel is kind of not straight between the seat stays. It's like this through the whole wheel too its not wobbly. it's pretty straight between the chain stays though.

    I checked the position of the hub and it seems ok too

    Check that both sides of the axle are fully seated. Looks like the one on the left is low by a mm or so.

    Yep, this can happen when the wheel isn't fully tightened and due to the chain being on the one side the wheel pulls to one direction.

    You can fix that easily and fast actually. Just flip the bike over and loosen up those bolts that hold the wheel, adjust the wheel and tighten them well this time. If this is not helping your wheel is probably dented in some crash or something similar. I hope it is the first scenario because in second you will have to change the wheel completely. My front wheel was hit by a car and dented so I will have to change it.
