Mein Auto: X5 2004 4.4 - 103k
Feedback: Which control arm is causing this?

I purchase this X5 from someone who got into a car crash. It has 100k miles, 2004, 4.4 model and it's a pretty girl.

The crash happened on the front right side (passenger). The fender and 2 control arms have been changed, the axle and strut seemed fine but there seems to be an issue with the way the tires are held up.

Below are some pictures so you guys can see how the tire looks and perhaps give me feedback on which specific arm you think is responsible (or maybe something else?) that could help me narrow it down.

Thank you so much.

Passenger - As you can see tire is shifted in a weird way.

9.9 - 10 inches from strut pole

Right side - for comparison.

10.5 inches
