Truck Pulling To The Right After Alignment

So I took my truck in to have it aligned at the dealer because it was pulling to the right after having 265 70 17 toyo mt installed. You wouldn’t think that the alignment would be off because of bigger tires but what do I know. So they aligned it and it is still pulling to right. Then I decided to have the front tires cross rotated to see if one of the tires were bad. Still does it. I mostly feel the pull on the highway. The truck will make lane changes by its self. What do you guys think. Maybe they are setting the truck to factory specs and not to the larger tires.

maybe they didn't balance the tire correctly.

btw, hi, newb here.

i got a 09 prerunner... off the lot it was pulling left some. the dealership said they balanced.... so i got it aligned, still pulling... had them check the balance on the tires... offf.... had it balanced... no problems now.

I think it is more due to road crown. Anyway, thank god the crown makes you go right, I hate falling asleep at the wheel.

You know after i put my coilovers on i had to take my truck in three times to get it right. Every time it pulled to the right. I reviewed the numbers sheet after each alignment and they changed the right side each time. Maybe the tech that did your alignment was under training...
