Car pulling to left even after alignment...help!!!

So while on a trip from Chicago to Canada I noticed my car was pulling to the left a lot. When I got back I went and got an alignment but the car is still pulling to the left. Could it be still pulling because of the uneven tread wear I got while driving with bad alignment or is it another issue?

yes, i've had that same issue. if the tread ware is bad enought it will keep pulling to the side. you can test this by rotating your tires to make sure.

This happens to me almost every time I get an alignment. I always take it back and tell them it's not right and to check it again. If its bad wear they will let you know.

sometimes is bad wear on the tires, sometimes it could also mean that you need to replace something in the suspension. But start by process of elimination of the cheaper stuff which would be the tires.

thanks everyone for the replies. I just checked the tread wear today and the left front and rear are 6/32 and right from and rear are 7/32 so I'm guessing it is the cause. aside from getting new tires is there any fix?
