Got alignment! Sooo much of a difference

My car is only 4 months old, but I changed rims about a month+ ago, and I have hit some bad holes on the road...

So i thought I might get an alignment.

the car didn't drive to the side or anything, it drove fine.. but I was a but paranoid

I got 4-wheel alignment done today
And although the car wasn't off by much, it was something... and afterwards, the car just feels soo much different...

My first left I made out of the shop I could tell.. .the car really goes where I tell it... and I thought it didn't even need alignment! lol

I hadn't had an alignment done in 3 years, you can imagine my surprise after it was finally done last month Similar to your case it wasn't pulling, but now the steering wheel reacts perfectly and accordingly to even the tiniest crown of the road.
