    On the first pic. You see at the top where it says net pull? That's a shitload. One of the tires is shaped more like a cone than it is a circle. That is where your pulling issue is. Normal net pull should be about 2-8lbs. On the last pic, the harmonics of the tire is perfect. But you need to turn it on the rim. Assuming the rim runout is good, the tech should be able to fix the radial force variation and it should read between 5-15lbs. Anything 20lbs and up is technically out of spec and can cause vibrations. Not to mention he balanced with smart weight. Always make them turn off smart weight and balance to 0.00

    If it's currently pulling right, rotate the rf to the lf. And then after that if it pulls left, the tire with the horrible radial pull is the current rf tire(in the pic). It's much easier to diagnose when I can see all 4 tires on the chart. And really easy if I can just fix it myself lol.

    You have to have the shop call the tire manufacturer and send the tire back for radial pull, they will prorate it based on the tread depth not used. If the tire is within the first 2/32" of tread depth from new, they will replace it free of charge, but you will have to pay any shop fees.

    Lol. These two tires were supposedly the good ones that I took off the back of my hellcat. I took em off to put on my drag radials. Then we put them on the front of my wife's 392 to replace the backs that we wore out. Her original front went to the back
