I own a 2006 late model exi. Bought it brand new in 2006. It came with 185/65/14 generals from factory. When my odo hit 80k 3 years back my brother swapped the oem simple rims for 15inch SH rims with Dunlop702 205/65/15. I noticed it gave me a little left pull when ever I accelerated it. I went to Honda north dealership Peshawar, they made immense efforts to resolve the issue but I gave up on it for the reason my car was good as new and I didn't want them to mess with it. Since it wasn't that significant until this year when the left pull grew so immense that on motorway if I let the wheel go the car would switch lanes immediately, I started off by checking the front and rear chamber adjustments, wheel alignments, changing the chimta bushes, checking the ball joints and everything but in vane. I then rotated the right tire with the left tire on the back of my ride the problem was significantly improved but not catered completely. The mechanics from all around peshawar told me it was the tires but It wasn't making sense. I swapped all 4 wheels with identical 15's from my friends car which had different rubber with 195/65/15 Yokohama and the car got is straight as an arrow.
For civic users I strictly recommend not to put this Dunlop702 Sp Sport on your car.
But I still don't understand why car would pull in one tire and not on the other. My tires were directional and we're installed as per the requirements. Experts are requested to shed light upon why it pulled to the left with that rubber and not with this one.
