    it looks like the wheel is not straight in the frame. Make sure the axle is fully seated in the dropouts and take another look at the brakes.

    Make sure that you have the bike upright and on its wheels when you put the wheel back. The weight of the bike should help push the axles fully into the dropouts and make it easier to get the wheel mounted straight.
