The roads are fine and the tires seems ok and th wear seems even.

I'll try to force the issue, because it happens when I stop at traffic lights and it tend to pull to the right.

I'll ask the to check the brakes as well.

Thanks alot for your advices.


: : : 3) Does the car pull to one side when braking?

: This can be alignment, wheel balance, a bent wheel or a sticking caliber. Force the issue with your dealer!

: How is the wear on that tire? Is it uneven or one sided? Go for alignment. If it looks good have the calibers checked.

: The brake pads should "float" in the calibers so you get even braking from each pad. If they are sticking you could get a pull to one side when braking.

: Also how is the road surface(s) in your area? With wide tires I get a pull sometimes with rutted road surfaces, but it go'es away on flat even pavement.

: If you feel it's not right FORCE THE ISSUE with your dealer! As far as I am concerend brakes are the most important system on your car, make sure they are right!
