I recently purchased a 1999 KIA Sephia automobile. Today at work, a guy said one of my tires looked like the top of it was leaning in , like it was cockeyed. So when I got home, I stood behind the car and looked at both rear wheels, and sure enough the left rear tire looked like it was leaning in from the top going toward the other tire. The right tire looked fine. It looked fairly straight from bottom to top, but the left was leaning in at the top.
What could have caused this, and can it be corrected? It is a safety hazard that needs to be seen about? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Possible broken spindle or bent rear suspension part. Should be checked out right away.

Could be out of alignment too. Was the vehicle in an accident?

Put the car up on jack stands take both rear wheels off and compare the sides, dose one look bent?
