steering wheel not parallel to seat?

The steering wheel in my X3 seems not to be exact parallel to the seat. The right side of the SW is slightly closer to my body when sitting straight.

Is it normal and by design?

I did see some left grease in where tire and rim met but not the center. Does tire installation or balancing uses the rim center to lock the wheel?
