Issues with Suspension/Tires??

Searched around a little on the site but couldnt come across a similar problem...

When my tires have the correct amount of pressure in them, car starts to pull to the right... Slowly, the front right tire loses pressure.... and at about 15psi, the pull to the right stops...

just to eliminate some possibilities...
i tried on two different sets of rims n tires (BMW rims) and experienced the same problems. Both sets of tires only have about 8k miles on them...

I'm guessing this is either alignment or a suspension issue?
Please let me know if u guys have heard of/experienced a similar problem.. (will be taking it in to get it checked out this wknd)

thanks in advance.

nope, no nail on the tire...
soaped the valve stem to check for bubbling and as expected, no bubbling either...

its happening on pretty much any tire im putting on that side, so tire issues are mostly eliminated i think.

Probably an issue with the left front suspension if the problem goes away when the RF tire is @ 15psi.
