There are a few things that may be the cause of your issues. First, your steel belt may have pulled to the outside of your tire. This is called radial pull. A quick way to check this is to swap the front tires from one side to the other. If it starts pulling the other direction its the tire. If it still pulls the same direction then your alignment is most likely out of spec. Most tire shops can help you with either of these issues. Many offer free alignment checks as well.
