My new Equinox has 1300 miles on it, Hankook P235-55-R19 tires. It has one heck of a pull to the left at highway speeds, no matter which lane. The dealer just did an alignment, no change. Then they did some kind of "force test" on the wheel/tire. Still no change. The pull is very pronounced over 60 mph. The dealer service manager is going to look into things on Mon. I'm expecting a new set of tires. Does anyone else have this problem? About 15 yrs ago, I had a problem with "tire pull" on a Buick. After 2 days of switching tires around and road tests, the bad tire was weeded out and replaced. No problem after that.

I would ask the dealer to swap the tires from right to left and see if the pulling goes to the other side. That would isolate the problem to a tire issue.

Sounds like a bad tire to me. I have the stock Michelin 17" wheels/tires and on the highway I can let go of the wheel for several seconds before any drifting occurs...and it's slight.
