Tires

I had my tires rotated today and now my car pulls to the right kinda hard, and there's barely any room between the brakes and the wheel and it smokes slightly when wet....any reasons why? Thanks in advance

He's pretty much a backyard "mechanic" so all he'd do is re-arrange them

It could possibly be alignment problems, I just had a ball joint put on not too long ago and he mentioned getting it aligned but then I was told to wait until both ball joints are replaced

Re: Tires

Anytime you deal with a shop in regards to wheels/tires make sure that they are using a Hunter Roadforce Balancer. That should of been done most likely.

Any idea of how much it'd cost to balance them at a professional shop?
