Looky Looky Car pulling to left, tyres?

Just thought this may be of interest. It has only just struck me the events may well be linked!

My 159 SW WAS pulling to the left, I don't think it is now, its disappeared! So whats changed?

When the car was on the RR at Red Dot they commented that the near side wheel was slightly 'off centre', the front N/S was moving up and down, just a few mm, is it the wheel or is it the tyre? Nothing to worry about and it would make little difference at speed, they told me. Interesting I thought, but thought no more. I did say though that the tyres were due to be replaced, which they now have been and its only now, since that change that I have remembered I used to have a N/S pull.

I will be going back on the RR soon, I guess its only then I will be able to tell if the new tyres are as round as they should be.

Oh! I know you will be asking, so better tell you, the tyres old and new are PZerro Rossos 225/17
