Depends on how much it's pulling. You have to realize that no public roads are perfectly straight, as they are designed to crown to the right so that water can drain...

Have your old tires worn evenly? If so, no need for an alignment.

While I haven't driven on Goodyear Eagle GT A/S rubber since the mid 90's, have you considered the Conti DWS?

Not sure why you decided on GY tires, but few if any 3 cars run on them, so depending on your needs for a tire, will dictate what kind of tire you should consider.

Also, the the Bridgestone RFT's generation 3 is out, and offers more control and less harshness than latest version.

Going from a RFT to a all season tire, and a GY at that, is not the best option, is there any reason you have not considered Continentals? a Far superior and rated tire to a GY. But if you live in Florida, why not a summer performance tire?

Alignment, tire compound, and tread design can play a factor in why your vehicle is pulling.

Changing out the tires and doing an alignment could be a possibility but you will not know until its done. I would recommend putting the tires on first. If that doesn't solve the issue, try an alignement.
