    mga bossing, gud day.. newbie lang po me pagdating sa cars..ehehe.. ummm,,may problem kasi me sa sterering ng car ko..

    e2 ung history..kasi, nagpaunderchassis wash me, tapos after nung wash, pinagpalit ko ung tires ko; ung sa rear na tires, inilagay ko sa front, then ung front tires sa rear naman..pinagpalit ko kasi feeling ko manipis na ung threads sa front kesa sa rear..then after nun, dun na nagstart ung problem..kumakabig na cya to the right..akala ko nung una baka tire pressure lang, so tinignan ko, and ok naman.. then, medyo matagal ko pa cya nagamit b4 ko pa cya mpagbaliktad ulet sa dating position ng tires (sa casa q nalang cya pinagbaiktad ulet,,checkup kasi noon)..then after na mabalik na ulet sa dati ung position ng tires, akala ko ok na kasi at low speeds hindi nangangabig, pero pag mabilis na ung takbo medyo leaning na to the right ulet (napansin q din na habang inoopose q ng kabig, hindi na diretso ung steering wheel, and may vibrations).. tapos, mdyo matagal q rin ginamit ung car q (la kasi time pumunta ng shop), den ngayon kahit at low speeds lang takbo ko kumakabig na sa right..

    pano po ba gagawin ko mga bossing?..ipapaalign ko lang ba?..may mga papalitan kaya dun?..and mga how much ung magagastos q?..
    and bout sa mga tires ko, kasi baka iba na ung kain ng tires ko, papalitan ko na ba?(about a year na ung tires ko)..

    tires ko is dunlop SP Sport FM901 195/50R16 84V..

    thank you so much mga bossing!!!..salamat ng madami..=)

    first of all ipa-balance mo ang front tires. then pa check-up mo pang ilalim, then pag walang sira ipa-align.

    Rotating tires does not change wheel alignment so no, your alignment did not just suddenly go out.

    Contrary to popular myth most "pull" complaints are caused by tires, not by the wheel alignment. Since your symptoms only occurred AFTER you rotated the tires that points the finger directly at a tire problem. Radial pulls such as you are experiencing are usually the result of uneven wear. That uneven wear is usually the result of a bad alignment but it is still the tires causing the pull.

    Cross rotate the front tires from side to side. The pull will either go away or move to the left. If it goes away great. If not you will have to live with it or move the tires to the rear.

    And oh yeah, get the alignment checked anyway since it is indirectly responsible.

steering problem?..help!!!..
