Car pulling to the left


Recommended Posts

The wife's Toyota is pulling slightly to the left, she says it doesn't bother her at all but it bugs the absolute life out of me.

Took it for 4-wheel alignment yesterday and I think it is very slightly better, however, it is still pulling to the left.

Does anyone have any idea where to go next, could it be something like the inner/outer tie rods etc?

Swap the front wheels over, as long as the tyres aren't directional. It may be due to the camber of the road, which will wear the front tyres on one side, exacerbating the situation.

Both tyres have 5mm tread and are both the same psi!

Are they the same make and model tho? A tread pattern difference will make a car pull

It’s normal All cars to pull slightly to the left in Uk , in Europe they will pull to the right, it’s all because of the road camber. If in doubt, just drive in the opposite lane for a while when safe to do so and if the car starts to pull to the right it’s just that and there is nothing to worry about. You can check tyres for uneven wear and all corners brakes to see if any got dragged due to a stack brake callipers or slider pins that can cause the car to pull to one side. The wheels will also tell if any of them has more brake dust than the others.
