    After not resolving why my front right tyre was going bold, I decided to change both tyres to Michelins Pilots Sport PS2. Now when I accelerate my car tends to turn to the left.
    Is this due to the toes not being straight – front right wheel is not aligned with the left wheel. Could this be the reason why my tyre was going bold? How easy would it be to adjust it myself?

    No, I've had nothing done, just replaced the tyres.

    I'd get the front components checked, both tyres would wear if the tow in/out was incorrect. I'd check the track rod ends, bottom ball joins and wishbone bushes for wear 1st.

    ok, I'll check that out asap - got my MOT due soon too, so I want everything sorted out by then.
