Mustang pulling to left

Recently took my mustang out of storage for the summer, put my new wheels and tires on and now the mustang is pulling to the left. I checked the alignment, and it's all perfect. Anyone ever have this? Could it be the tire? Or wheel? I'm having to put a very small fight to the right so it'll go straight. If I do just let it go, it goes left within 100 feet.

w/o insulting check air pressure and that you've removed the C clips that hold on the discs if you've gone to non-oem rims.

Air pressure is fine, first thing I checked. And the only clips I took off were the ones that hold the rotor on at the factory, which you need to remove to put aftermarket wheels on.

Also, while you're at it, check to make sure brake is not dragging.

That's the next thing I'm going to do, check to see if the brake is dragging.

Drifting lazily to the left? That's your move? But you didn't do anything...






Check the brake for dragging, check air pressure and then if its still doing it take it to an alignment shop. It might be off just enough where you can't see it but its still off a bit.

Swapped the fronts around and still pulls left, and check for a dragging brake but no sign. Bought a panhard bar to Straighten the axle, axle doesn't seem to be centered all the way

Mustang pulling to left

Did you get an OEM panhard bar or an adjustable one?

Weird....My 08 GT has been doing the exact same thing since changing my wheels. I even went out & bought a 2nd set of wheels & had an alignment done & still have the problem.
It seems every Mustang I've owned & I've had about 10, always have Front End Suspension / Steering Problems. It seems to never go away until I change out every Bushing.
I was thinking this time it was because of my wider tires 255 / 35 / 20 in front & me just not use to driving with a tire that wide. I'm convinced it has nothing to do with my tires now...but still unable to figure it out & I've had it to 3 shops & nobody can see what the problem is. Guess I'll have to change all the Bushings on this car also even though they don't look all that bad. I'm going to do new control arms also just in case one got bent slightly.
The cars always handle 100 times better after installing good bushings anyway.
