Pulling to the right

Hi all,
Just had my car MOT'd and I had to have a new front passenger tyre because
it was damaged.
The new tyre is of the same brand/make as the rest, however it obviously has
a brand new tread depth on it whereas the driver's side front tyre is alot
more worn. I am planning to replace this tyre at the weekend so I both front
tyres brand new.
Now for the problem...
If left to coast, the car will go in a straight line without any hands on
the wheel. However, the moment you accelerate it will pull quite heavily to
the right. If I break it will pull to the left. Is this due to the
replacement tyre having a larger circumference?
Thanks

Or it's stiffer or any of several other things.
I'd swap both fronts for the pair off the rear.

Just like small aircraft. Tend to pull right - if prop is turning clockwise. Longer driveshaft on the right, causes more turning motion. Centrifugal force pulls right. Braking pulls left. You need to know this at very high sppeeds. When braking it should be straight.. Check your braking system. DaveK.
