I emailed Vizio photos of the screen with a level showing how far off center the bubble in the level was when placed along the front of the screen, plus a photo of the level upright showing the increase in space from the bottom of the screen to the top. Their advice was to reinstall the base. I did; it's the same.
My 554 leans back too. But when I got it the set seemed fine so I kept it. I placed some large felt pads on the rubber pads undeneath the rear of the stand. This did level it off and you can't notice the difference on the stand. That's on a 55" set. I don't know how much it would take to level yours and with that large of set I'm not sure if you would want to. My 52" Vizio that I have leaned back too so I did the same.
The other suggestion would be to put some washers behind the mounting plate at the bottom where it attaches to the screen, if this is possible, to help tilt it a little forward.
My 65 is still sitting on the floor and now that I look at it, it looks like it's tilting back slightly. But it's on carpeting so I'm not sure how it will be once it's on the stand.
