Hello, There are two primary reasons why a truck pulls to one side or the other. First is the if you have a front end suspension component that is damaged or bent that causes the front end to be misaligned. The second is a tire issue called a radial pull. This typically happens when the tire's internal cords become stretched due to shocks or struts worn out or being hit by a pot hole.
