One of the new tires may have radial pull. Rotate the front to back and see if the problem goes away. If so, go back and get a replacement tire.

Okay... So I went back to NTB and they cross rotated my front tires and had me test drive it to see if the pull went away or to see if the pull shifted to the left. Well after the test drive I noticed the car did start to pull slightly to the left and was no longer pulling to the right. Looks like it might just be a bad (new) tire and I guess it is radial pull (never heard of that before, but makes sense). The manager at NTB took it a notch further and re-did my alignment (front and back) as well as a cradle shift and was able to damn near zero me out on caster, toe and camber. I am going back this Saturday to the tire shop where I purchased the tires to have both fronts replaced.

I believe the car then had Both problems...

After any suspension work on a 92-99 H Body Bonneville you Align all 4 wheels no matter what the reason.. Everything has to match up...

On the Tire, its always possible to have a Bad tire brand new.... May not happen a lot but its always possible..
