The main reason for a car pulling one way is a 'biased' tyre.Out of curiosity,I'd swap the tyres side to side on the front,or front to rear if the tyres are directional,and see what happens then.

You don't say if your 15" wheels and tyres are new,but I suspect that they haven't been balanced properly(if new) or damaged(if second hand).We get a lot of people complaining of wheel wobble at speed on brand new aftermarket wheels(especially if their purchased from a certain high street retailer...),and they have always been miles out when we have put them on to our balancer.

As Horatio says,get them re-balanced and go from there.Good luck,and let us know how you get on.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
