Need help with bike

My front wheel is almost touching the frame of the bike and at times itís the pedals when I turn the wheel. Do I need to get small sized wheels? Can I just change the forks on the bike? Please I really need help and donít want to waste money.

Do you have pictures? sounds like it's suffered a front end impact that bent the fork.

You need to provide more info. Is this a new development? Some bikes are designed like this.
