If it's only the RF tire, then there are only a few suspects: wheel 
bearing adjustment, ball joints, tie rod ends. Of these, only the 
ball joints are difficult to test. Check the Bentley for them. You 
can make makeshift tools to do this job, or an alignment person may 
be able to do this for you.

It's probably also worth considering wheel alignment and tire
