Default Steering wheel is off-center and tilt changes when driving

Hey, so my steering wheel has been off-center for a while, and I just fixed somethings before getting a proper alignment done.

A while ago I replaced my outer tie rods, and my steering wheel was consistently off-center for a while (even after some bad alignment jobs).

Yesterday I did the inner tie rods and replaced all my struts. After doing this, my steering wheel was off-center as usual, but not at its usual position.

In fact, the off-center position/angle/tilt seems to change as I drive. If I make a right turn, it seems to start tilting towards the right, when I make a left sometimes a bit to the left. Then sometimes it seems to be a bit straight.

Tomorrow I plan on getting new tires, and I was planning on getting an alignment right after that.

Is this something that should be fixed with a proper alignment? Or did something go wrong with the new inner tie rods or struts?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you live in the rust belt, you might want to closely inspect your subframe. They tend to rot out over the years.
