Handling problem

I have a 2013 gt with 19k miles on it. It's pulling to the left. I just had an alignment with a new tire installed at ford about 2 weeks ago . Any suggestions? It feels off and it takes more effort to turn to the right.

My V6 2013 and now my V8 2013 does this, aliment checks are always fine. I found most roads I drive on are causing it, not the car. mY Pontiac G5 did it as well, bad roads around here. My large truck does not do it as much or at all, but these sports cars and smaller cars can tram-line.

Did it do this before or after you installed the new tire? And was it on the front end? If so , that could be the source of the problem, it or its installation. Why only one? If I have to replace a tire on the left due to a problem with it, it wont match the one on the right anymore; wear.

Say I got a car, 30K on it, I have a bad front left tire, gota suck it up and replace both the left and the right or you get issues. work around is to put mismatched tires on the rear and move your matched rears to the front.

I replaced one of the tires with alignment 2 weeks ago but I also had another one replaced less than a year ago. The dealership inspected my car and said one if the tires need replacing. It pulled to the left BEFORE I had the alignment and new tire installed. It started doing it again just a day or two after the installation.

Yea, get dealer to look at it again, if they cant fix it find the best recommended tire/alignment shop in your town recommended by the local gear heads that use it. Most towns have 1 or 2 tire shops used by gearheads that buy lots of "big meat" tires. When they drop $2k or more on tires, they wont put up with pulls to the side on semi-show cars.
