Default 95 Camry 4 cyclinder -- steering problem

My Camry tries to wander off to the right. Just a little but I have to
keep continuous force on the steering wheel to keep it going straight.
My tire place did a 4-wheel alignment but it didn't help.

Is there a "zero set" for the power steering box?

I don't think you're dealing with a power steering problem here. Assuming
that the alignment was done properly the next step would be to
cross-rotate the tires and see if the condition changes.

I'll bet you're right. I seem to remember hitting a chuck hole fairly
hard and the front tires are getting a bit old. It's time to buy 2 new
ones for the front.

I ruined a Michelin at 35000, the broken belt could not be seen by the
tire guy with the tire off, but it pulled hard to the right for years ,
when it jumped around corners I went in, had I known I would of done it
earlier. You can rotate to confirm it.

Yep. That was it. Luckily my tire place doesn't charge for rotating
(or patching, etc). The pull moved from the right to the left after
rotating. So it looks like I get to buy a pair of new tires. Thanks
for your advice.
