Wheel Alignment/Caster Adjustment

I have a 190E 2.3 with 138,000 miles. I've recently changed the tires, and now the front passenger side occasionally rubs on the fender at the front of the wheel well.
Upon inspection, I realized the passenger side wheel/tire sits about 17mm farther forward in the wheel well than the driver's side.
Is this a "caster/camber" issue? In any event, it seems that this could be corrected by adjusting the bolts that mount the control arm to the body of the car?

Any insight would be appreciated.
