Steering wheel

Hi chaps little issue I’ve got. My steering wheel sits ever so slightly to the left when going straight. It doesn’t pull at all unless I straighten up the wheel then off to right it goes. I’ve had it aligned twice and both times it’s sorted the issue for about a week then it reverts back. I’ve replaced coil springs, ball joints, lower control arms, had tyres balanced (as slight shake in wheel) and still no joy. Am starting to think it’s actually my tyres that’s the issue. Any advice would be grand.

I had the out of line steering wheel and it turned out tracking had been done by adjusting the track rod on one side only. The steering wheel will only go on in the expected straight ahead position so it important that each track rod end is adjusted equally. So tracking should have cured it if done properly. If its increasing it does sound like a tyre issue and as its increasing that would indicate something progressive and would worry me. Perhaps its time to swap tyres around to see if the pull changes with the tyres. And yes , I have heard of tyres causing issues like this.

Tyres are brand new Pirelli p zero I did have the issue before tyres were fitted but it was in opposite direction. Then swapped tyres front to back and had tracking done and balance it went off to left. Lad at tyre city gave money back then I went and got it done again at Kwik fit and all was aligned bar the rear toe that was slightly out. Am thinking of replacing track rod ends and getting it done once more. If that doesn’t cure can only be the tyre
