Just had some new tyres put on the rear of my ef falcon and the old rear tyres put to the front.

the car seems to have a slight pull to the left now, b4 it was slightly to the right.

will this affect tyre wear at all?? is it a good idea to get it sorted?? i can go back this arvo to get it fixed but after waiting 2 and a half hours this morning and then realising they put the new tyres on the front instead of the rear, i can't really b f*cked :?

cheers

Always have your better tyres on the front.

Go and get a wheel alignment, that'll fix it up

could be a wheel alingment drama or even a difference in tyre pressures, also worn suspension can cause this!

a good check of the suspension/steering with a wheel alingment will either a fix the dram or b find the cause of it

some tyres make the alignment feel worse, due to tramlining.
