Deflated Tyre
Worn Tyre on 1 side
Tracking

or all of these - check to see all tyres are inflated the correct psi

Are your tyres wearing on one rim?

If so, it's the tracking - go get it checked - either that or your tyre pressures are WAY out

Need to know what make your calibra is and has it been modified (ie alloys, lowered?)

all vauxhalls pull to the left a bit, as a safety feature. saved my *** when i dozed off in my corsa for a few minuites on a left hand corner on the motorway [img]/smile.gif[/img] though yours sounds like its pulling more than normal?

Must admit, thats news to me. I put it down to
1) camber in the road
2) lowerd suspension
3) bad tracking

I work for buckley tyres and get this problem alot. Radial tyres can sometimes have a bias to running in one direction only. Try swopping your tyres from side to side assuming there not directional. If they are try swopping front to back to see if this improves any. Normally tracking doesnt really cause the car to pull to left as bad as your saying but if it's about 20mm or more out it could.
