Rotate your tires from the rear to the front (don't forget to put the fronts on the rear) and go drive again.

I once had an alignment shop refuse to charge me for doing a 4 wheel alignment because he couldn't get it to stop pulling to the right, mostly during acceleration. He tried various tire rotations until he minimized it, but never quite eliminated it. He blamed it on the tires.

Another test: Switch front tires left to right. If it pulls the other way, guess what? TIRES!
