Question Wheel alignments

This is regarding and LR3 so therefore is in the misc section.
How often do ya'll have wheel alignments done on you LR3/4 and RRS?
My tread depth is even on all four tires, however when I let go of the steering wheel on a straight stretch of highway, it will pull to the left slightly. Looking for input...

Cheers...

I got my LR4 used and it needed an alignment at 1 year/8k when I got it. I can't speak for that year. At the time I was told they need aligning often. Over 55k miles later I don't think I've had it done again. My tread wear is even (on another set of tires now though) but no pulling that I can think of.

maybe you can play with the tire pressure a bit?

If the tire pressure isn't the issue it could be the tires themselves. Is the tread pattern non-directional? If so, you could try swapping the wheels side to side and see if the pull changes directions or goes away.

I believe they are not directional.
I have Bridgestone Alenza Plus tires. Great tire, I have 15k on them.
It have 35 psi in the front now, no noticeable change...
