If your car pulls in one direction while driving, don't panic. This can happen for a number of reasons. As a Auto Bearing Manufacturer,I will share with you.
1. Uneven tire pressure
Usually, the culprit is something simple. Uneven tire pressure can cause your car to pull to one side. For example, when the pressure in the left front tire is too low or too high, the height of the tire changes, which causes a shift in alignment. This is a good rule of thumb. Tires that show wear on the outer edges are underinflated. A tire that shows wear in the center is overinflated. Usually, the solution is simple: inflate the air to the proper pressure for your vehicle model. However, low tire pressure can also be a sign of a tear or hole in the tire. If you continue to have deflation problems or your car continues to pull, this is a clear sign of a bigger problem.
2. Inaccurate wheel alignment
One of the most common reasons your car will pull to one side is incorrect wheel alignment. When your wheels and axles aren't aligned correctly, you'll notice your steering wheel - and the entire front end of your car - pulling to the left or right. If this is the problem, a mechanic can easily align your wheels and you'll be able to drive normally. However, a more serious symptom of wheel misalignment is uneven tread wear. Because this will cause the tread to wear quickly and unevenly, your tires may become unsafe.

3. You are experiencing brake problems
Does your car only pull when you put your foot on the brake? Chances are you are dealing with one or more of the following problems:
A stuck caliper, a collapsed brake hose, a slip pin problem.
4.Bad Wheel Bearing
A Auto Steering Bearing is a crucial part of the wheel assembly that connects the wheel and the axle. It is a set of steel balls (ball bearings) or tapers (tapered bearings), held together by a metal ring. It enables the wheel to rotate smoothly with a minimum of friction. Wheel bearings are safety critical components designed to sustain radial and axial loads caused by gravitation, acceleration, breaking & cornering forces, so they need to be replaced when they stop working properly.
Wheel bearings have an average lifespan of 136,000 to 160,000 km (approximately 85,000 to 100,000 miles). This is only a rule of thumb though, the actual lifespan of a wheel bearing depends on the quality of the wheel bearing and the operating conditions.
When a wheel bearing is worn, the signs are not to be missed. Often, the car will exhibit other symptoms before it starts to pull. Usually, first you will hear a grinding sound from the tire area and your steering wheel will wobble. Finally, the car will most likely pull to the left or right. If a wheel bearing is bad, contact your mechanic immediately. It is not safe for your vehicle to be driven in this condition.
5. The suspension or steering components are worn out
If your tires are not the culprit, your steering or suspension components may be the root cause. When either one of them wears out, your car may start pulling to one side or the other
