Hmmmm, maybe it takes a while for the tires to break-in then. I only have 600 miles on my vehicle, and I guess I should wait another couple weeks or so to see if the problem remains.

I have the Dunlop tires. I too have noticed that the car seems to pull right a little when going straight...but I kinda think it's the shape of the steering wheel that leads me to believe alignment is off or something...

: but after driving a couple of miles it seems to go away. I figured it's just a flat spot from sitting overnight. This is my first experience with such high performance, low profile tires, so that's my rationalization. I have the Conti's, by the way, with 2800 miles. (Think I might go for better quality ones when it's time to replace.) Do you have Conti or Mich?

: Another thing I noticed is there's sort of a vague feeling in the steering at center position on the highway - tends to drift. Sometimes it feels like there's a slight pull to the right, but it's very difficult to isolate. Also think this may be somewhat tire-related.
