Question New Toyo MTs now pulls to right...

I replaced my OEM tires on my 2008 with the Toyo MTs and now it pulls right big time. Tire place rotated the tires and checked the alignment, everything is fine. I called Toyo and they said they have this issue on Dodges but haven't heard of Fords having the issue. Dodges have put on Steering Stabilizer to fix the issue. I can't find one that can fix this for the Ford.

Any Ideas??? I don't want to swap the tires out as they look freaking awesome!

I bought it with the kit, so I never had the pull problem.

I got it all from TruckToyzperformance

The Toyo MT's have the most radial drift of all of the tires out there. You should be able to fix it using offset upper ball joint cams.

I just put the toyo mt's on and if i cut the steering wheel slighty left and right on the hi way the truck seems sloppy almost like its on ice. Is this the radial drift that you guys are talking about?? Or is this just normal for a mud tire. I had BFG muds on my old truck and it didnt do this???

Nope the radial drift is if you take your hand off the wheel then the truck will drift to one side. Mine drifts toward the ditch pretty bad. I can't take my hand off the wheel for more than a second. I still have the issue after a thousand miles but I don't have the cash for the fixes right now either.
