Default New tires & rims pull to the right

I just put winter tires and steel rims on my 2001 Accord coupe. I've
noticed the car seems to want to pull to the right now, and didn't before.
The tires were on a different car last winter, is it possible the camber/toe
was different enough on the old car that it's causing this one to track to
the right? If that's the case, it should eventually even out as the tires
wear to match this car's setup, right?

Well they are a directional tire, so if that solves the problem should I
have them both remounted the other way around? Or would that just mean that
it's a tire wear thing that will eventually go away?

In that case, try swapping them front-back. If the alignment was off
only front or rear on the original car, only one set should be worn, and
at the very least, it should CHANGE the degree to which it affects your
steering now.

Directional doesn't matter. Swap them left to right anyway for testing,
but be careful on wet roads.

This sort of problem does not just "go away".

Hi,
Providing they are not directional.

Of course, you could always take your car by a tire shop and have them
give the tires a look - most should do it for free, and they'll know at
a glance if there are any strange wear patterns. If the tires are good,
you'll probably need to have the alignment done, and most larger tire
shops can do this as well.

no. get the alignment checked by someone that knows what they're doing.
that's not as common as you may suppose. if it still pulls, rotate
the tires. if that affects it, keep rotating until you find a combo
that works. or replace them.

a directional WINTER tire? I didn't know there was such an animal.

why would a winter tire need to be directional? What benefit?
It doesn't make sense.
