    Sounds to me like you need to go to your local shop and get a front end alignment.

    Yup, An alignment would be cheaper than replacing tires and it would be fixed right.

    have you replaced the tie rod or is it that you just think the old one needs adjusted. also have you checked the ball joints upper and lower to make sure those aren't blown out and potentially causing the problem too. If it's a new tie rod on the truck then I would do as the other two here have said and just take it to a shop and get an alignment on it. would be a one time fix and usually alignments are guaranteed for a good while after they are done too.
