Default Strange Pulling During Acceleration

So a few weeks ago while driving to work, I hit a fairly large piece of scrap metal in the road that tore my rear diver side tire to pieces. I finished the commute on my spare and went home straight from work that night.

The issue is that ever since I had the spare on, my car pulls left while accelerating to the point that I have to counter steer a bit. As soon as I take my foot off the gas, the car jerks right. It did this with the spare, and now it does this with the new tire. I know we should replace all tires at once, but the set only had about 3,000 miles on it, so I'm not that concerned.

To give you some basic info on the car, it's a 2005 STi. Stock suspension besides kartboy rear end links. I have a set for the front I have yet to put on, as well as new pads, fluid and rotors. I do have a bit of brake drag on the front passenger side, but it's been like this since before the pulling started.

I'm not sure where to start- rotation? Balance? Alignment?

Thanks in advance.
