You mean it's dished? as in, if you put the wheel in your dropouts straight, the rim is closer to one side than the other?

Easy fix, tighten the nipples/spokes on the side you want to pull it over to, and loosen the spokes on the other side. 1/4 turn intervals

Nah I meant the hub is not the dead centre of the circle, the circle being the wheel
