    Go back to the dealer and have them realign it.

    Hello Premeir620 and welcome to the forum.

    Having to hold your steering wheel 2 right of center could indicate a problem with rear axle alignment. Return to the shop who performed the alignment service and discuss the problem with them. Be sure to get the results of your alignment from them. If you aren't certain they are being honest with you, go to a third-party shop for an alignment check. In your part of the country, you should be able to find an NTB who can do an alignment check for free.

    What did your old tires look like?

    Thank you, just purchased car certified pre-owned. 3 pages of extensive warranty work on car. 2 new front wheel hubs, yes both wheel hubs, 4 new tires, indicating excessive tire wear, wheel alignment and several recalls done. It doesn't pull or squeal at all, just steering is far right a couple degrees driving straight on all roads

    OK...as long as you have documented that your front AND REAR alignment is within specifications, then the problem may just be that the shop didn't center your steering wheel BEFORE they did your front end alignment. If they don't do this, then you end up with a car that tracks perfectly straight...but the steering wheel is slightly off to one side. My Mirage is like this right now.

    What do the alignment numbers look like? Sounds like you should have gotten an alignment printout.

    Alignment resolved

    Independant alignment shop found steering thrust angle out of spec.
    He said the driver side tie rod was several degrees out, causing wheel to point right. Tbe printout shows basically all green zeros now. Car rides great wheel on center
