Hi,

I just put on my summer tires (I live in Canada), and ever since, my car keeps pulling right. I checked the tire pressure and it's all good on all 4 wheels. I never had an accident, so the mags are all straight and I ran on the summer tires for less than 5,000 miles since I purchased them.

Any ideas as to why my car would start pulling right after just changing the tires?

My winter tires are on winter rims and my summer tires are on my mags.

Thanks!

i am guessing a simple balancing of your tires would solve it..

Who changed your tires? The dealer? If so, I'd say get their ass on it. They have standards to maintain which they're also accountable to and this sounds like poor craftsmanship. Take it back and say "Fix it again Tony!"

If it pulls right under acceleration only, it is torque steer. If it is pulling at crusing, it is more likely alignment; a balance issue would cause more of a vibration and not a pull.

That could be a lot of things...pressure, balance, bent wheel, suspension problems, bad tyre, joints, etc...

I had the same problem after i changed my tires in BJs. In my case the tires on the right side had low pressure. Make sure that you have the right amount of air in all the tires.
