Unhappy Toyo Open Country M/T Questions

So I tried the search function and like most VBulletin Boards it sucks. Feel free to harass me and point me in the right direction if this has been covered.

I just had 33/12.50R20 Toyo Open Country M/Ts put on my 2010 Ram 4x4. I put on the Daystar 2.5"F 1"R lift/leveling kit at the same time and had an alignment done.

Well, now I have a right hand pull. After much search it seems to be a fairly common problem. Has anyone alse dealt with this? More importantly, is there a fix?

In case anyone is wondering, this is how they look. I rather like it, just the damned pull.

They look great, and I'd want to keep them to, so just a few of the 'dumb' things to check first... like tire pressure, or possibly sticking caliper. An issues may be the alignment, have a look at the numbers, also, rotate the tires and see if that cures the problem... if not, then it's an alignment issue, not a tire issue.

Alignment was done at the same time the tires were installed, numbers are all litterallly right on factory spec. I have double and triple checked the pressure and rotated the tires three times. No brake drag (good guess and what I thought too initially after rotation didnt work). I even had a second facility confirm the alignment.

I know its the tires after alot of research. Seems to actually be quite a common issue that even Toyo is aware of. My biggest question is has anyone come up with a fix, especially with the IFS front end. Were the Ram a solid axle like the Jeep it would be a rother easy fix.

Already swapped, and with the rear front to back and side to side. At this point every tire has been in every posittion. Still pulls to the right.

I dont have the alignment print out, i must have misplaced it. I will have them print another one next time I am in the area.

As an example. Computer said factory toe needs to be between .01 and .02 degrees. Mine was able to be set to .015, literaly dead center of factory spec. Same with camber, caster. I just dont have all the numbers off the top my head.
