Can an alloy wheel cause my car to drift/pull to left or right?

One wheel makes car pull to either left or right. Car started out with old tires I needed replacing, and for a few months before my car would drift/pull kinda hard to left. Got new tires cuz I need them, and new tire did excat same thing. My dealership did and alignment and it did not change a damn thing. So my dealership swapped front tires side to side, and the pull was on the right. They then swapped the pulling right side tire with the same side back tire (both sides passanger side), it really didnt seem to make a difference still pulled about the same to the right. Sooooo, they called it a defective tire and replaced the one. As of today it still pulls right (since tire/wheel is on the right side currently). It seem even with a new tire on the wheel it didnt do anything, and which ever side I take the wheel too, it will pull to that side. Sooooo, what might be the problem? Is it possible that that specfic factory alloy wheel somehow got messed and could actually be pulling the car to the right or left? Im out of ideas. Any suggestions would be great.

I would look at the front end for play. If it is ok, then I would be looking at the rear suspension for a failed part causing the car to move all over.

Go to another shop for a second opinion on the alignment issue.

A wheel causing a pull? No, I do not believe so.
