lower profile tires will follow the road a lot more than a 70 profile tire. if the road isn't even then it will pull easily. it's normal dude. i know how you feel. the first time i felt my car pull the way it did i was scared too. damaged rims wouldn't cause you to pull that badly. if anything, they would vibrate like a *****.

YEs they are just falling the road. It's from the tire being so wide, and that is is a front wheel drive car. You should not fell it on a rear wheel drive car,because you are being pushed, inset of pulled.

Nope, you gotta live with it, or go back to your stock 13's. You get used to driving like that though. Give it a while, you'll get used to it. I didn't like at first, and I still don't like the pulling, but I'm so use to it, I could care less now.

hey, i went from 13's to 14's with a 185 60 and mine pulls to the left. and vibrates the steering wheel. but only with these wheels and tires.. tires are only a year old, second season for them. any reason why they do this? its even worse with the rear tires on the front. wanted to put the rear on the front because the front are worn down .

Curb wheel could make the hub not centred.

Best bet on your end to ensure proper wheels: balance and proper tire pressure.
