Check to make sure your air pressure in equal side-to-side. Don't forget to check the air pressure in the rear tires as well.

It could be a tire pull, switch the two front tires and see if the pull changes direction, if so, it could be a tire pull.

Just putting new tires on should not cause an alignment problem.

d3bilhan Any time it pulls suspect
#1 alignment (4 wheel)
#2 worn suspension part
#3 tires
#4 damaged suspension

The alignment is the most likely and cheapest to resolve
A joint can be worn, but this is normally a high mileage issue
The a belt can be coming loose, even on new tires
If you have damaged the suspension, you should know it

hkysk8r07 they adjust it, my friend went to goodyear and got an alignment when they were mounting his new tires. but he got the alignment cus his steering was really messed up and it made noises and the car would drift off to the side. but after the alignment it was better. and the sheet he got saying what was done showed one side was off so much and the other side was pretty bad too

2000FordFocus I don't know the answer to this, if my alignment are off, does that mean something need to be replace or can they just adjust it??

GCubes Maybe you need an alignment, but it's not because you changed your tires.
