i think like roger on this. at the very least, it's increased heat and accelerated wear. at the worst, get slapped (ripped) by a slung chain, or rear wheel lockup.

either way, i'd want to fix it.

I checked the tire as ed suggested...the tire is not setting well around wheel, it almost makes the wheel look crooked....I had another set of eyes confirm and the "gaps" (dont know the proper term) between the tire and wheel are different all around, (only on the left side) especially where the chain rubs the tire. Right side is ok. Do I deflate first, then over deflate ? Or just over inflate as is and let settle?

I'd deflate it then lube the tyre edge's with soapy water then pump it back up again to seat the tyre on the rim.
You might get a loud pop/bang as the tyre slips into place.
After the tyre has seated, deflate it to your desired pressure.
Sometimes you dont need to over inflate the tyre, with a little soapy water to lube the tyre against the metal wheel rim they can just slip into place.
