Help !!

i'm a newcomer to alfas, in the 70s i thought they were useless and forgot about them, but while on holiday in spain i saw a new 159 and was quite impressed, got back to uk and bought one ! a 159 sportwagon lusso - i was due to change my car anyway though .

4 months on and a niggle which somebody could help me with ?

after cruising for a few miles at constantish speed and then on braking the car will pull to the right or left but mainly the right.

the dealer has told me this is normal when using 18 inch wheels and low profiles ............

is this dealership twaddle ? and is the real cause that the brakes are coming on incorrectly ????????
