Tire Fiasco

So I blew out my driver side rear tire a couple days ago and got it replaced with brand new oem rubber. Subsequently, after the assholes installed it they told me I should have ordered two because my other rear tire is on the verge of blowing as well. Anyways, since they replaced the the drivers side rear tire the car has been pulling super hard to the right. Could this be simply because that particular tire is just a larger diameter due to more tread, causing my car to push itself to the right (I literally have to fight to keep it on the road)? And if so, would this be damaging my other tires in the process?

Also, I'm extremely fucking confused as to why both my rear tires are so bald with only 20xxx kms on the car. Is it possible my alignment is way out? Being a broke ass student, I have a hard time swallowing nearly $500 per tire every 20k kms.

:toiletp:

Get some all seasons next time! What the tread rating on the OE Bridgestones again? Like 240?
The adjustable ball joints are the best solution, but may be pricey for a college stuident, especially if you're notperforming the labor yourself.
Lower springs will add negative camber. It's a poor way of doing it, but it'll help the poor wear problem.
