New tires and Jeep pulls to the left

Just switched to Nitto MTs and the Jeep pulls to the left. I'm going to first look into the tires and change them around to see if that eliminates the pull. Then I'll do an alignment, but any idea which way to swap the tires? Front to back or side to side? One axle or both? I'm trying to make sure it isn't one tire causing the problem.

Have the shop that installed them re-balance them. They should be able to tell which one is off, if that's the problem.

Going to do that today. It was Discount Tire so will go to the one closest to me. I may have to do more than rebalance though. If they are all well balanced, I may have to switch the tires around and see if that helps or identifies the potentially errant tire. Hopefully I can get an alignment done soon.

Right-left switch did not fix the problem. They said the tires looked fine. Next step is an alignment. If that doesn't fix it, I have an annoying problem. I may have to insist on new tires and see what that does. I can't drive a vehicle that constantly pulls to one side. It's always something....

Did you recently add a steering stabilizer? I've had a Bilstein that made my Jeep pull to the left. Switch to an OME fixed it.

No, I had that for over a year. I did switch it out to the stock one. There wasn't much change. So I then had Discount Tire switch the tires from left to right and vice versa. Still no change and it still pulls to the left. I'm getting an alignment done tomorrow. If the alignment looks good and it still pulls to the left, it has to be the tires. Discount Tire will have to switch the tires out. I may just go back to MTRs and give up on the Nittos, unless they can find the tire that is out of whack. I should know more tomorrow.

sounds like Radial Pull to me. I'd rotate front to back.

Likely what it was. I decided to go back to MTRs (new ones though)...problem solved!
