New SLK250 PULLS RIGHT

Just got my new car with 18" wheels. Auto wants to pull right on the highway. I rotated front tires in case of radial pull..still does same. Taking back to MB soon. Has anyone else had this issue?

rotated front tires you mean left to right?
usually wheel alignment

I would take back to the dealer.

But does it do it on all roads? Does it pull right if the road is level?
