If you IGNORE what the wheel position is in, does it drive fine, or does it physically pull when driving straight (note driving straight not steering wheel straight)
I have very limited time available during mon-fri week (+ my wife uses Civic to travel to work every day) hence the silence...
As of today I managed to test it first by driving on a straight road - ignoring the steering wheel being off and driving on straight car wouldn't pull on its own (it might be doing it at a very low level that's hard to catch while driving in real life).
I went by the previous advice and swapped left and right wheels without touching back - this operation made no difference. Steering wheel is off still.
I rang local authorized Honda dealer and spoke to their service guy - he gave me absolutely no help! Only useless questions of where is the car serviced, where did you get tyres and that he can't stand for someone else's work etc... pure marketing brain washing. How on earth anyone would go to Honda to buy tyres
- I got the tyres from a local tyre place that's doing tyres for 20 years and getting all brilliant reviews from people coming back and recommending them left and right (Honda guy blamed tyre place straight away!)
I'm sort of thinking it must be something with suspension - a bushing or joint... Might be one of the steering rods too. I don't know enough about it. Something is loose enough to give-up when new tyres try to drive their own way.
Question now I have is if an independent service garage would be able to review entire steering and suspension in detail or am I stuck with Honda authorized service centre that will take my skin off
