If the vehicle has not been in any accidents, has not been run into curbs or very deep potholes, od anything else that is abusive to the suspension, then a wheel alignment and tire replacement will correct the issue. However, if there has been damage, there may be bent or broken front end components that need to be replaced before the tire and alignment are done.
Lastly, a bad ball joint, wheel bearing, or spring will cause the same issues.
