I recently purchased a new set of Bridgestones for my 94 (150K miles).. Now the car pulls to the right. I've had it in to the dealership for an alignment... it is a very long story... yada yada yada.. can't fix it. Everything is within specs, the alignment guy says the car should pull left the way it is set up but...it still pulls right... makes lane changes easy.

The tires have been moved front to back with no affect.. The dealer claims that the car needs to go to a frame specialist to see if the frame is bent.. I've had the car from 36k miles and haven't had this problem with the Comp T/A's

Any thoughts on this?

Goto a GOOD alignment shop.....it's obvious this dealer isn't qualified.

Unless you got a set of defective tires (not likely, but hey.....it could happen) the tires would not do this.

Just for giggles try moving the front tires side to side and see if the pull changes. I know it is unlikely that the front to back change you did would not catch it, but some tires are made like a cone - one edge smaller diameter than the other edge - and they will pull like crazy. You would have to have two that way when the front/back didn't catch it, but stranger things have happened.
