Tacoma pulling to the left afrer 33's put on

Just put on 33x12.5s. Had to do the Pinch weld mod, ( thanks for the help guys). Anyway the wheel is a little shakey while driving and when i put on the breaks it pulls to the left hard. All 4 tires are around 24-25 PSI. Any sugestions. maybe rebalance?

Pulling during braking usually means a caliper or pad issue.

Shaking during driving is usually a tire balance or front end alignment issue.

pulling when your braking can indicate a suspension problem. usually the side that it pulls to is the good side. try checking out the suspension on the opposite side it pulls too
