Pull to the right

Hey there WRX tuners! So yesterday I took my wheels off to plastidip them (temporary until I can afford nice wheels lol) and didn't pay attention to which wheel went where. So I went through old photos and matched the tread as best I can and I think we got the tread right but now it pulls right harder than before (use to pull slightly, was barely noticeable) but now it's more significant. Any ideas on how to fix it? Possibly put on not 100% flush? Thanks guys!

I'm rocking steelies! I love them. Though I did get a pair of stock wheels for free just recently that I may paint gold or some random color to match silver.

Sorry, keep rotating till you find that sweet spot. Swap your rear tires to the front. Try re-balancing the tires and if none of that works, alignment time.

Tire pull due to putting tires in new positions.

I have hancooks on my summer tire and when I rotate the one I have more pull and they have less then 3k miles on them. Just live with it and rotate them normally

Fixed the problem, went to check my tire psi and my front right was 19/42... Fill that puppy right up and now she's driving just as before! Make sure you guys fill up the tires lol

Be sure to check your spare tire too - especially when the seasons change. I check mine twice a year (when it gets hot and cold) and it's usually significantly different than where it should be.
