Alignment Problems

So, i just got my Interco Trxus A/T's mounted and balanced on my stock wheels. I called one of the firestone's here in town and asked them if they would do the $150 lifetime alignment w/ larger than stock tires. they told me no. So, i called another one and they told me yes. i took it to them and had them do the alignment as well as new back brakes. After it was done, i pulled out of the parking lot it was pulling to the right really bad. It was pulling to the right after i put on the new tires. it was riding straight when i had on my old tires and the old tires all had even tread on them. i was in hurry so i did not take it right back to them. i just went back today and had them re-align it again. still pulling to the right, but not near as bad. but still more than it should be taking into acccount the crowning of the road. they told me when i took it in the first time that they could not align it perfectly because it had bigger tires and the bigger springs in the front. they said they could get it to ride straight but i would have to rotate my tires every oil change which i do any way. Does anyone have any advice or similar experiences with this? what do you think about the lifetime alignment from Firestone?

try crossin sides with your front tires and see if it pulls to the other side.if it does go back to the tire shop where you got them and see what they can do.it mite be a bad tire.

had them mounted at the Goodwrench Quicklube at the Pontiac/GMC dealer here in town. I bought them on Performancepartsfortrucks.com.
