Could be tires for sure. I had similar issue in my 07. Went through 5 sets of warrantied Federal 595rsr until they found me a set with no issues. I'd imagine Yokohama would have significantly better QC standards than Federal, but who knows.

I know a lot of places including dealers don't center the steering wheel very well before running the alignment. I've had similar issues in the past (not on my Subaru's but other brand cars).

Luckily there is an alignment shop that does nothing but alignment and suspension settings/repair on limo's, high end cars, race cars, etc in my area. I took the same car to the place and they were able to center the steering wheel perfectly.

In the OP's case it's the tires, but not all the time can one blame the tires and wheels. My tires and wheels were flawless, psi were matched to 0.1psi.. and yet the dealer/local 'regular' alignment place could not get the steering wheel straight.

I have issues with the Dunlop SP 600's on my 2014 WRX STi 5-door; severe cupping/scalloping of the rear tires caused by out of tolerance toe from the factory. It started at 4,000 miles and now, at 11,000 miles, I've got to replace them. It sucks to have a car misaligned from the factory. Never had a problem with my 2002 bugeye wagon.

Ditto

Michelin 265 all season pilots, forged 18" wheels...stock alignment was left untouched.

I have an 18 wrx that needs an alignment that also pulls to the right with under 20k on it.

I got the extremely identical problem with yours. my car is 18 STI. when I am runing on perfectly stright road, I have to keep the steering tend to right maybe 15 degrees, and then car can go stright. BUT ! ! ! If the road tilts to left, steering will keep evenly... I have done 6 times alignment for this. 5 are in **** dealership. Last time was in a dependable shop, but the problem has not solved SO FAR! ! ! I am too despairing, it is not concerned to stock tires, the problem comes form the steering wheel, I think! Next I am gonna take steering out and check!

sounds like the yokohama tires to me. They've been known to be defective.

I just swapped out my stock Advans for Pilot A/S 3+ and the off-center is much less noticeable on my 2019 STI. So this definitely is influenced by the tires.

I have the same issue on my 2019 STI. It makes driving on interstates a chore. I don't have this issue on typical two lane roads and city streets.

Take the car to Westend alignment in Gardena, CA. He'll sort out your alignment issues.
