are they radial tires? You moved the front left to the rear left and front right to rear right correct?

You might need another alignment.

two things i can think of, not sure if any applies

difference in traction due to different types of tires

difference in circumfrence, but shouldn't be if you bought tires as a set

if your tires were worn improperly to begin with, as soon as you rotate them they will pull in the direction they were worn on. Your tires should "wear in" once they've been in the new location for a while and not pull as much. Changing the tires would be the ultimate answer, I doubt alignment is the problem since it didn't pull until after you rotated the tires.

well if you were straight before, it means you need an alignment and also new tires
camber or toe is way off

it tends to do that when you have new tread. its just gripping on uneven pavement lines.

get your alignment checked again. if the car pulls to one way, your tires soon will wear down to the metal within weeks. mine happened a few days ago.

That's because when people lower their cars and don't keep them aligned properly they tend to wear on the insides of the tires which causes them to be prone to following the uneven road lines. The problem here is your tires and the way they were worn BEFORE you rotated them, not alignment. You have 3 choices: 1) replace them. 2) leave them and let them "wear in" in there new positions. It won't go away but should improve over time. 3) rotate them back to where they were and replace the tires as they wear out 2 at a time.

simple (and stupid) question, but have you check your tire pressure? (sometimes you got to go back to the basics first)

A lowered car is the most common way for people to get abnormal tire wear...I was just using it as an example. In your case your abnormal tire wear was from poor alignment...either way the point I was making was that abnormal tire wear is what's responsible for your car pulling like it is. Another good point that was made is to check your tire pressures...good place to start!
