Brake housing scrubbing inner rim

I rotated my tires yesterday and now the back of my brake housing is scrubbing the inside of the rim. It is the front / passenger side tire on a 98 740iL. I took the tire off, took the brake assembly apart, and took the rotor off, put it all back together to make sure nothing was loose, and it still scrubs. Is there some type of adjustment to pull in the break assembly? It's rubbing in the center of the rim; it's leaving about a quarter inch wide scrub mark. I really need help with this. It doesn't make since.

Are the rims staggered?

the problem was a little clip

In the process of changing the tire the anti-vibration clip on the outside of the brake hub was knocked off and put back on incorrectly. The clip was pushing the outer housing against the rim. It was a simple fix, Thank God.
