New Wheels, looks like one side lower that the other?

Any ideas?

I have just put new MV2 alloys one my 325ci 2001, my old one were MV1`s, so the wheels are exactly the same size.
When you test the gap between tyre and wheel arch i can place three fingers on the rear near side and just two on the off side rear.
When I change the wheels I did notice that when putting the new wheel on the off side rear I needed to jack it up more to get the wheel on.
The car does slightly look to be leaning to one side(or maybe it`s me being paranoid).

Any help will be appriciated.
