    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    Get them balanced, they're most likely out.

    Tracking affects pulling to one side more than vibrations though can be a cause. A balance check is cheaper, too.

    They have been balanced sevral times and they have been fine every time. Iv dabed a few kurbs but nothing that would put the tracking out i would of thought. Could i maybe be missing a weight of the driveshaft? would that effect it?

    its either the driveshaft, or if you have got after market alloys you'll need spigot ring


    mine does it and ive had them tracked and balanced so its prob spigot rings

    my wheels have a 10mm bigger bore than my hub

    I had the same problem with mine last week after 4 new tyres. Turned out that they'd put one of the back wheels on the front and it was slightly buckled which makes significantly more difference to the car at the front, also some of the balancing weights had fallen off the other front wheel. Had the weights put back on and put the buckled wheel back on the back where I can't notice anything and its super smooth again.
