Bike Rack? Thule Vertex 2

I have a curt hitch, and recently added my thule vertex to the hitch. However, my front tire has very little clearance with the road. Does anyone have this problem or a solution?

I had a 2007 fit prior to my 2016. Not sure why I'm having this issue.

Can you post pictures? I was looking at the rack and want to see how close it is.

You can get riser extensions for your 1 1/4 receiver, not all racks need them though.

Could you remove the front wheel when the bike is mounted?
