Pulling to the right
Well I recently had a a flat on the rear passenger side tire. I ordered and Identical replacement from the dealer and took the rim in to the dealer to have it put on. I put the rim back on and have now noticing the car pulling to the right. The new tire was filled with air while the other three are nitro. The car had a slow leek and went flat in the garage so it didn't take any damage in getting the flat. I just wanted to know if anyone had any thoughts on why the car would seem to be out of alignment now.

how many miles are on the existing tires?

Are you sure the pressures are correct on all 4?

Pulling to one side is indicative of low pressure if no other parameters have changed.

Unless they gave you a lower profile tire on the rear by mistake.

According to the on board the pressure should be ok all are abit low with the cold weather I think ill stop into the dealer and have him drain and fill the new one and fill the other three with nitro sense they do it for free. Ill also check out the measurements of the tire again all though im fairly certain it is the correct size.

How many miles are on the original tires?

Does it do it on every kind of road. I know both of ours seems like they pull when the road has a slight crown.

disengage the traction control and stabilitrak, sometimes that seems to pull one way or the other and by shutting it off I have eliminated it.

I've noticed my car pulling to the right as well if the rear tire grabs the crown of the road.

If you had said your car pulled to the left I would have mentioned a driver weight issue. :sm0:

Seriously people check your tire pressure the old fashioned way to verify the computer. :)

I just picked up a digital pressure gage and checked all the tires, they are all low but even front are 31 psi the rear are 31.5, im going to stop by the dealer tomorrow and have them fill them back up sense they refill the nitro for free and im heading that way anyway. I dont think this would be the problem sense they still have even tire pressure correct?

It pulls to the right...the right wheel in the rear went flat. Have you driven the car on concrete freeway to nullify the crowning on heavily traveled asphalt which would pull car?

Also on freeways, left lane, car will drift to left, right lane to right.

Did you have a left to right 30 mph wind that day? Did you hit a pothole or curb?

The car is new. I automatically rule out calipers sticking. Either you think it pulls, or it pulls. WHat happens when you set the cruise to 70 and remove hands from wheel?

I would suspect that the fact that the replacement is filled with air and the others have nitrogen has something to do with it. If I'm not mistaken, the pressures will fluctuate differently as the tires warm up and cool down. Also, is the tire by any chance one directional and installed backwards?
