Exclamation My Ride NEEDs some Help

i have 2 months old indigo LS TDi.
i have fitted 195/60 R14 Alloys n Tyres.
The orignal Fitting was 175/65 R14.

The problem is ....... the car pulls a lot towards Right.
i just did alignment from the Agency...... but after that it starts pulling even more.
is this coz of the broad tyres......... or a problem in alloys.??

n is that pulling will cause wearing if tyres.???
the Frount Tyres r showing signs of wearing on the outer side.
my car has clocked 9,000 KMs.

Jatt, to me it seems that mis-alignment is still the culprit. Do you have the printed post-alignment report after you got it done from the agency? Check on the Toe-In/Toe-Out figures and see if the "after" settings are within the specified range.

Jatt... Welcome to the forum... Please make sure you have read the announcements!

when I upgraded to 195/60 R 14 Michelin MXF Sports tyres they constantly used to pull in the direction of the slope of the road... Hence never could take my hand off the wheel! Secondly There was this mild tug to one side which remained throughout... When I changed tyre direction - sit strated lugging in the other direction..Anyways have moved to Yokos ES100's and the issue seem gone! (the Michelins lasted 40k of some decent use )
