Yes.  I have the wheels and tires from a 13 Limited on my SEL.

I just got a 2012 Edge Sport Sport, with the 22 inch tires on it. The edge has 19k miles on it.
This thing is all over the road, and when I apply the brake it pulls to the right. So, I dump a pile
Of money into 4 brand new O.E. Tires and an alignment for this thing to still PULL. Instanly.
I took it back to the tire shop, and they check it again. They told me my sub frame needed tweeked!
Well, guess what still pulls... Yup. And my steering wheel makes a weird click or grinding noise.
I did swap the tires around to make sure it wasn't radial pull. I'm super frustrated that a vehicle
With less than 20k miles on it, 4 brand new tires and 2 alignments that it still pulls. On all types of roads
At all speeds.
Do I take this thing to a dealer or try another alignment shop?

Just purchased a used 2013 sport and this was the first thing I noticed when I test drove it.  I figured it was an allignment issue so still went forward with the purchase.  They replaced two of the 22s since they had low thread.  Supposedly they aligned all before I left the lot, but I still notice the pull to the right.  It's subtle, but there.  Even the steering wheel is not completly centered.  Love the ride, but definitely would like to see what you guys are doing to fix this problem.

My problem was separated tread on the 20" Pirelli Scorpions. I have had 2 replaced already on separate occasions. Vehicle was good for a while. I rotated my tires at 30k and the problem is back. Third bad tire maybe?

In my case, the pull is intermittent. Very subtle sometimes and then I'll drive over a bump and then the pull is worse.

I was wondering what size wheels the problematic cars are running and if it could be a problem exaggerated by wheel size/tire design.

20" wheels from Limited with Pirelli Scorpion tires. In my case it's a tire issue.

mine pulls both ways sometimes, i think mine is the road and crown.  22" sport low profile, just one of those things to get used to.

It's the contact patch from those wide tires, I had a cobra that was all over the road especially on these shitty roads here in Ohio. My 14 sport does it, my 12 SEL did not.

a car is suppose to pull a little to right for safety. if a driver ever were to fall asleep at the wheel the car would pull to the right so it would not go into oncoming traffic. a true alignment always pulls to the right

It is natural for the right side pull since the shaft on the left is shorter it has less torque steer and more power thus pushes to the right.  Very common FWD issue.  I may add that you could try changing the LCA's out if you have been driving it hard the rubber bushings may be worn and allowing the pull to be more pronounced.

I had an issue like that about a year ago, as soon as I bought the car, I noticed the right strut was busted, I made the dealer replace both of them. Every-time I pressed the gas, the steering wheel would slight jerk to the right. Dealer tried to tell me it was torque steer, another dealer had the car for 2 months, replaced axles, power steering pump, steering rack, they called in a field service engineer, and even checked with the PLANT that built the car, they pretty much gave the car back and told me nothing they can do..Finally I took it to an alignment shop where they found that the right lower control arm bushing was so work out, the rubber was peeling off and hanging under the car..I had him put it in writing and took it back to the dealer, they replaced the right lower control arm and that FINALLY fixed the issue all under warranty thank goodness...Whoever had the car before me must had hit a huge pothole before trading it in...Sorry to say but the Ford techs in this case, showed some incompetence with this issue, the fix was right under their noses the whole time. They were overthinking the problem.


You can see my thread on this forum.


I do not believe the subframe tweaking response at all..unless the car has been in an accident and bent the frame, that is not the problem.


Take the car to a suspension/alignment specialist, someone who's been doing it for years and that's all they do.
