Guys running bigs and littles

I've got 15 10s in back and 17 4.5s in front. Wondering if anyone has a problem with the car pulling to the right? I just had an alignment done and I'm perfectly in spec. Triple checked the tire pressure(40 psi in front). Also, the car doesn't pull at all with my street wheels on. Confused!

You might try switching front tires to see if it pulls to left. I have seen bad tire do that.

No issue here with my setup. Which front tires are you using?

You can adjust the adjustable lowers to make it go straight.

If it drives straight with street tires and wheels, and is within alignment spec, why would you want to adjust the thrust angle to run straight with skinny's?

I read the post. Was it a 2 wheel alignment or 4. Either way adjustable control arms will fix it.

Shorting the left or lengthening right is what's needed.

Got a 4 wheel adjustment. I get what you're saying but wouldn't it have to be something wrong with wheel/tire being that one set drives perfect and one pulls?

Are your relocation brackets setup correctly? If the passenger side is not in the right position it will make your car pull. Is your steering wheel straight?
