Hi all,

Since this morning i can feel a light thud/tick in my steering wheel (up until this point i can't hear it like i read a lot about on the internet).
Also the car seems to be pulling to the right side.

In testing, it didn't seem to get worse under braking

Do you guys have any idea what it can be ?

You've checked your tires?

Yes i did,

pressure is fine, there is more than enough thread on the tires and no bubble or anything like that.

Also after driving, the brakediscs weren´t hot.

Yes ive checked the tires,
pressure is good, still a lot of thread on the tires (they're as good as new) and there is still lead on there from balancing.

Also the brakediscs didn't seem hot after driving, so i think i can cross out a stuck caliper.

Ir's sounds like one of your tires has pulled a cord
That won't cause a pressure drop but will cause the described problem.
Jack up the suspected (right front first) tire and spin the wheel while watching the tread area for any wobbles.
Tires that pull cords are guaranteed by the manufacturer so any dealer should replace it free.

@ Oldstuff

You were right,
it was a wobble in the tire, unfortunately it wasn't replaced under warranty and i had to pay 200 euro's :(

Thanks for everybody who helped me figure it out !
