rear tire dish q

My rear wheel is true but I think it is dished. Should the rim be centered between the 2 tubes that go from the bottom bracket to the rear hub (at the front side of them, near the bottom bracket)? And the rear tire is supposed to be right over the frame right?

Yes, the rim should be centered in the frame. The dish may be off, or the axle may not be seated entirely into the dropouts. The wheels need to be on the ground and the axles seated into the dropouts when the quick release is closed or the axle nuts tightened.
