This has helped quite a lot, in fact its 100% better but it still tries to steer right on some roads

They thought that maybe an alloy was buckled as when driving they thought they felt something on full wheel reveloutions but this was down played.
They then said that because these tyres were so wide, they wore unevenly and rather than being flat they were almost rippled on the tread ?

So, million dollar question !
The fact that the steering has improved since the tyres have been moved around tells us what ! Any ideas whats going on with her ?

Renault will do a diagnostic check on the ramps for me but it'll cost 82.25 and this dealer doesn't want to pay that when 'he has a garage he uses already and he trusts'
