your alignment may be getting out of wack...plus your sttering wheel vibrating can be know to do so while braking due to your rotors being warped under alot of breaking...get a better wheel alignment and get better rotors...TRD makes some good ass rotors

I've heard about this 'pulling to the right' thing many times before. In fact, my dealer even told me that its a common and documented problem that most IS300's experience. He said that a realingment may only soften the problem, but not cure it...... but so far, I've not seen it personally.

Im bringing it into the dealer on Weds so well see what happens....I didnt think I was braking to hard, but who knows?

Good luck with your car......Red is a great color ... that wouldhave been my second choice...

the vibrating while braking is probably because of warped rotors as already mentioned, but the warped rotors may not be from braking too hard, they can just be from getting them wet when they are hot, such as washing the car after driving it or going through a puddle. i have the same problem

What is interesting is the pulling has stopped & everything seems back to normal....Maybe it was from washing the tires?? :crazy:
