Hello. My name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you today. The issue that you are having with the wheel is likely to be a bent strut(#3) where it meets the spindle(#2). Also, if this is the case, the lower control arm(#9) maybe damaged also and in need of replacement. In order to confirm this, you will need to lift and support the vehicle. Once the vehicle is lifted, then you can remove the tire and inspect these components. Once the tire is removed, it will be easy to spot. Here I am attaching the parts diagram for the front suspension so that you can locate the parts easily.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
