Hey guys, got a little issue with the ram, I switched my summer rims/tires back on the other day. Swapped the rears to the front, and vice versa.

She pulls to the right, within one pole length (100') its pulling me right into the gravel. Its just weird to me because with my winter Territorys she went straight as an arrow?? But the moment I swapped tires now this?

So went and asked around today, only found one place with a brand new alignment machine here in North bay, and it's a Honda dealership. A buddy at a shop said he could do it but didn't want to with my aftermarket rims. So he shipped me to honda.

They said they can do it, but for 139$$. *uck me running....:Wow1: Just wondering what you've been charged.

I just don't remember hitting anything or that this winter that hard..


But I made the appointment for tomorrow, the guy went out felt my tires said my front passenger side feels like its toeing out.

So guess we'll see, I am going to keep an eye on my rims. When I got my Nitro aligned with rockstars on them, they chipped the powdercoating putting the sensors on.

It probably is just the tires Like Hemilancer said. They should go back on the same side as they came off of. But as far as alignments go I paid $139. from Firestone for a lifetime alignment.

I paid $60.00 for an alignment 17,000 miles back and it's true as ever but I agree that it's probably the tires.

Moving wheels back to original positions will probably cure it but...
If you have a tire thats worn to the point that its causing tire pull, you probably would have noticed it when the tire was new.

Have you checked your cold tire pressures?
Was the road you were driving on when the pull occurred rutted or worn unevenly?
Do you have uneven wear on any of your winter take offs?
Did the shop quote you an alignment price for 4 wheel or 2 wheel alignment?

I'd do some investigating first, then have a competent shop experienced with Rams do an alignment.
