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.

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