Few days ago I went to Firestone Tire and Auto repair center to replace all 4 tires. I bought all-season Firestone FR380 model. I am extremely happy with how those tires perform.
However, I also asked for wheel alignment to be done and they did it. After 2 days of driving I've noticed that my car slightly pulls to the left... not much, but I've noticed it since I know how my car used to go perfectly straight, even if you're not holding your hands on the steering wheel.
So I went back there and they checked wheel alignment for me. They told me they did some minor adjustment but that shouldn't affect anything... they claim even first time it was done perfectly... well, I am not an expert, but after they did this adjustment, I feel like my car goes a lot more straight than before... it doesn't pull to the left side any more.
I was wondering if someone can read these wheel alignment readings for me and tell me how they look. I've noticed there was one number marked with black background square, so I guess that's the number they adjusted. They also wrote another (new) number with a pen right next to the one that's marked.
I'm just wondering if there is someone who can tell me could this really be what caused y car pulling to the left... I repeat, it wasn't that obvious, but I've noticed it when driving. I also noticed that when I used to hit some small bumps on the road, my steering wheel used to tilt to the left side... always to the left and never to the right... it also looked to me like turning my steering wheel to the right side was a little harder than when I'm turning it to the left side. Now it looks a lot more even.
Here is how this sheet of paper with readings look like. I marked that number exactly the same way they did it on the original paper and I also added that new reading for Rear Left Camber and marked it in blue (they added it using a pen).
Thanks in advance for your help, I appreciate it.
have the same problem?
