Ply steer describes the lateral force a tire generates due to asymmetries in its carcass as is rolls forward with zero slip angle. It is the characteristic that is usually described as the tire’s tendency to “crab walk”, or move sideways while maintaining a straight-line orientation.

The vehicle would pull in the direction of the wheel that is further back. Cars that were involved in accidents and not repaired to original specs have this problem. The pull can be strong enough to wrestle the steering from your hand. If the wheel was hit and it's back by a fraction of an inch you can get pulling. I've seen cars repaired and the wheelbase and track are wayyy off. I first started alignment over thirty years ago and although I'm done with that now( my brother took over) I do collision repair still and have equipment that can measure down to 1mm tolerances. Sometimes when alignment shops can't correct problems they still send them to me.
