Anyone experience Radial Pull? Good Year Tires?
Anyone ever heard of "radial pull" from tires? My good year dura tracs (325/60r20) are making my truck pull to the left like it's out of alignment. Everything on the truck is within 30k miles old. I religiously rotate my tires with every oil change (6k miles) and am extremely meticulous about my truck in general, I'm very Obsessive Compulsive.
I went to a heavy truck repair shop today to get an alignment on my truck since it's been slightly pulling to the left. they called me an hour or so later and said everything on your truck is nice and tight and the alignment is all with in spec (which I kind of figured since it's all new but I was out of ideas on what the issue is).
The guy said we suspect your tires are causing this from "radial pull" he told me. They swapped left to right on the front and sure enough the truck pulled to the right. they swapped my front with the rear and moved the tires all around the truck and could chase it around.
My question is, the tires have ~22k miles on them. they have easily another 20-30k miles out of them, but if they're going to make my truck pull one way or another is there anything I can do? warranty? Good year? I'm kind stuck here, I don't have another $1600 to throw at a set of tires since these ones have better than half the life left on them!
Has anyone had an issue like this?
I'm going to play around with swapping the tires around to get the least amount of pull one way or another and mess with my tire pressures some more.
Thanks for any input and sorry for the long read
