Knot Kidding A front end pull is one of three things...1. Obviously an alignment issue (the alignment readout could show perfect but keep in mind...the vehicle is "not moving" during this process) 2. The tires (even though new) could have bad belts.. (as noted earlier swap the 2 tires to rule out bad tires..THIS IS THE EASIEST AND CHEAPEST WAY TO MAKE SURE! (if nothing changes then you have ruled out "bad tires") 3. check the straight alignment by painting a stripe in the center of each tire and scribing a line scratched by rolling the tire. now roll the vehicle back about 10 feet and back forward to a straight slow stop on your driveway and simply measure the scribe marks between each tire at the front (mark to mark) and at the back. (should be somewhere from the same measurement on both or slightly (maybe an 1/8 inch smaller (or narrower) at the front. If this checks out and the tire swap did not make a difference then "something is "MOVING" on the frontend when rolling. Did the same people do the front end work that did the alignment (the alignment guy has many to do and does his alignment an moves on to the next if his numbers look right) ?? Maybe have another shop look at the work that's been done. This info comes from personal experience from 3 of my "own" hotshot trucks chasing front end issues for close to 1,000,000 (combined)... It's not rocket science! Good luck!

redexpress It may be a well known tire shop but some of those big chains I run from. They change managers like we change socks. I know one of them not worth the lead to kill him. Pathological liar. I'll deal with Discount Tire or a small town family run shop.

Sgrem Ppppfffttttt....
Credit toward good tires.
Get what you pay for.

Ducatibilt If they're saying it's the tires, why wouldn't they just switch them from side to side to verify that the pull switched sides?

Did they replace all the bushings when you had the front end rebuilt?

Yes bushing, tie rods, all new front end. I took it back to the shop and they rechecked the alignment and gave me a printout of specs to give to the tire shop.

Truck pulls to the left all the time.

I didn't know the tires had that bad of reputation. I looked online after the sale man told me about them and didnt find any bad stuff... guess I didnt look hard enough.

Still seems iffy to me that a big name tire store would sell something that pulls.
