11' f250 pulling ?

I've got a 11' 250 kr with 2.5" leveling spacers (came out to 2" as I've got a full replacement bumper on front). Had stock tires on no issues. I put 35 12.5 Toyo mt's on and it pulls to right. I bought and installed ready lift's track bar drop thinking it would help and it didn't. Tire psi is 60 all the way around. You guys have any idea what the problem might be. I'm thinking the tire are to round as wheels are only 8" wide (I think, they're stock kr 20s).

Toyos and lift at the same time or new tires later?

I just put 35" nitto's on my 08 and now it pulls to the left lol. Could be radial pull from the tires or you need an alignment. You could try and swap the front tires around and see if it pulls the other way.

Ohh nm. Swap front tires side to side. If it pulls left now, you have a pulling radial. get a new tire or put and leave that tire on the rear.

That is wide for a 8" wheel. I believe they recommend 9" wide wheel minimum. It should not pull to one side though. I would look at an alignment since your noticing it after the lift.

What hack of a tire shop mounted those wheels? If you ever had a blowout that tire shop could be held liable.

8.5" wide is the approved wheel width minimum from toyo. Our wheels are only 8" wide... Also did you get the alignment cams with your leveling kit? If you buy a higher quality product like Icon or Carli they come with everything you need.

And what do you mean by your 2.5" lift is only 2"?

My truck does the same thing I have the exact same lift and tires but have the 20x9 and it pulls to the right. Had numerous alignments and could not fix it. I got the track relocation bracket and it helped but still pulls a little bit. Thinking of getting an aftermarket track bar to see it helps.
