Checked my tyre pressures, had the tracking checked (found to be less than 0.3 of a degree out) had it looked at underneath to absolutly no avail!
Car just loves to head towards the hardshoulder or kerbside, Tyres are not wearing differently everything seem as it should! Any ideas??!


Ta in advance

Cars do tend to run in towards the gutter due to the camber of the road! Seems strange that you are feeling it so badly though! Has it always done it or is it since youve put different tyres on it? Who checked the tracking and what machine did they use?

Mine was the same until the standard conti's wore out and where replaced with toyo proxes. No alterations to tracking just new tyres and has been spot on since!

Well to be honest i thought it had only started doing it since i took it to my local stealer
had it since June and never noticed it before just had its 1st MOT and 3rd year service , after having it out with them they agreed to check it and said it was spot on and suggested changing my wheels round!!

The first thing to do is get the tracking checked again all 4 wheels, after that if it still pulls, try swapping the wheels front to back, do you have any kerb damage to the wheels?

I have been told by my dealer befroe that the tracking was fine, when in fact it was out.
