Tire pressure that's uneven can make your car pull to one side. For example, when pressure is too low or high on the front left tire, the height of the tire changes, which causes a shift in alignment. This is a good rule of thumb: Tires that show wear on the outer edges are underinflated.

Why does my car pull to the right after new tires?
Tire conicity refers to a problem in a tire when it's made. Sometimes during manufacturing, one of the components becomes misaligned and causes the tire tread rubber to harden in a slight cone shape, rather than the proper cylinder shape. That causes your car to pull to whatever side the defective tire is on.
Can tires cause car to pull?
Vehicle pull can be caused by misalignment, but it can also be caused by uneven wear on the tires, a low tire on one side, or a tire separation.
What causes a car to veer to the right?
One of the most common reasons why your car pulls to the right is uneven air pressure in your tires. A tire with lower pressure on one side of the vehicle has a different height which causes the wheel alignment to shift. Under-inflated tires have an increased resistance to roll, which amplifies steering pull.
Can new tires mess up alignment?
It doesn't matter whether you get your alignment before or after having your new tires put on. Most experts agree that the only effect worn tires have on your alignment is a change to the vehicle's ride height which, given today's steering and suspension design, should be negligible.
Do cars naturally pull to the right?
Cars designed for driving on the right side of the road are manufactured to pull slightly to the right. This is to prevent the car from drifting into oncoming traffic if the driver falls asleep at the wheel. ... If your car is pulling significantly, it's a good idea to get it checked.
What causes a vehicle to pull to the left?
Often, the culprit is something simple. Tire pressure that's uneven can make your car pull to one side. For example, when pressure is too low or high on the front left tire, the height of the tire changes, which causes a shift in alignment. ... Tires that show wear on down the center of the tire are overinflated.
Why would my car pull to the left?
Tire pressure is a common and simple cause of a car pulling to one side. This occurs when the tire pressure is out of balance in one or more of the tires. If you suspect tire pressure it the root cause of your troubles, simply fill the tires to the manufacturers requirements and see if the problem resolves itself.
What would cause a car to lean to one side?
A car that is leaning to one side is almost always experiencing an issue with the shocks, springs, struts, chassis, or suspension. These are all critical parts of the vehicle, and should not be dismissed. Continuing to drive a vehicle that is leaning to one side or the other can do further damage to these components.
Do cars naturally pull to the left?
James, that is very common question we receive, not just for Hyundai vehicles. And it is true that most car makers develop the suspension set-up in road cars to pull slightly to the left (in right-hand drive cars) for safety reasons.
How do you tell if your camber is off?
Two indicators of camber problems are the vehicle pulling to one side (the one with more positive camber or possibly less air in the tire) and uneven tire wear across the tread.
How often should you get an alignment?
Most mechanics recommend that you get a wheel alignment once every two or three years. However, the best thing to do is to follow the recommended interval in your owner's manual.
