    car pulling to the left

    just got a set of sri rims on the car and realised that the car left to the left, was fine on my 15s before

    ive checked tyre pressure and all are equal

    could unbalanced wheels cause this?

    mine was doing that, tyres where all low so filled them up, then i relised that the left tyre was going down rapidly, had new tyres fitted and it sorted it out, sweet but if youve checked tyres id say trackin or dogey suspention, maybe wheels need balencing

    will start with balancing, i dont think its tracking as it was fine on the old set

    someone else said it could be a buckled alloy

    im sure it will show up when i take them to get balanced

    what should tyre pressures be, i put 32psi all round

    Out of balance wheels will show up as a vibration at about 60-80mph, and that goes for a buckled alloy as well (since it's not round).

    Pullingto one side is usually down to tracking as the wheeel(s) are pointing in the wrong direction.

    As for tyre pressures - that will be dependanct on engine/body style - downlods an owners manual from here and check you your particular model
