Have this checked for a bent wheel or bent axle or bushing worn on springs or spring shackle mounting.

That would imply you have independent rear suspension and that wheel is out-of-alignment. The angle in question is called "camber". The people at a tire and alignment shop can inspect the suspension system and tell you if there's worn parts or if an alignment is all that's needed.
