Please help. I have had to replace my newer tires (10,000 mi on 60,000 mi tires). They said it was due to choppiness on the inside of the tires. Before they replaced the tires I had an alignment done. The only issue I had had was a vibration in the wheel at high speeds (over 72 mph). The vibration was gone after new tires were mounted in the front but now it is out of alignment. They said they put different tires on and replaced the cam bushings and tried 3 more times and still cannot get the wheels aligned. Why is this? They said they are stumped and the car still pulls to the right. I said that the alignment was fine until they put the new tires on. Please let me know the answer to this mystery.
Thank you so much.

Now first off if the tires were all choppy on the inside the alignment was not correct to begin with. Now how many miles are on this car? Have the inner and outer tie rods been checked? Are they doing a front wheel alignment or a 4 wheel alignment like the car should have? If they can't do a 4 wheel alignment then you need to take it to someone who can. See if the rear is out and you set the front the car will not track right therefore you will get a pull. It could also be that you have a bad tire from the factory have the ties rotated if the problem is solved then that will answer that. Get back to me and let me know how it goes. Alignments and brakes were my specialty till I went to performance engine building.
