    I got my tires rotated a few weeks ago, and ever since, my alignment has been off. Is this because of the wear patterns? I waited too long to rotate them...I think about 8K. This will go away soon, right?

    Very common for tires to cause a pull. Your alighnment did noyt change, just the tires. Chances are that one tire is worn more-so than the other, or slightly shorter than the other. Try to cross the two front tires (left to right, right to left) and redrive- Also check air pressure.

    dont worry at your next rotation it will cure itself, but seriously it might be air pressure or they were wearing funny im sure it just needs a bit of an adjustment
