Default HELP! WHAT IS THIS?

can someone please tell me whats going on here. This is the front tire on the passenger side of my 2006 pt cruiser. This is less than 1/2 an inch from the top of my tire. It does not look normal to me and i am concerned. I bought this car used and love it but not looking forward to hearing the results of whatever the problem is. Thanks in advance.

The strut? Hard to tell, but is there a bend in it?

There isn't a ton of space between the struts and the tires on these things. Is it the same on the other side? Check the tire size and make sure it's the correct size for your wheel. Can you get a better picture, maybe with the tire turned out so you can see better?

Are you running stock wheels & tire size? This the strut like 808 said. If it's not touching & tire ware is OK don't sweet it. It's OK. Like the others said, there's not a lot of space there anyway.

I'm told that my left side tires are closer than my right, but I never see that. I guess it's only when I'm sitting in it (LMAO)....

it seems as if it is more visible on one side only. Thanks for the information about the amount of space between the struts and the tires. Going to post a better pic!
