Yes, adjust it. On lawn and garden equipment the set the tires as straight as possible. Because of there low speed the equipment it's not a huge deal. So just adjust it as best you can without any worrying.

To give you a professional soultion I really need a complete model number.
Here is what happens when steering becomes a problem on ANY brand of riding mower.
1. Tie rods get bent
2. Wheel spindle pivots get bent on one side.
3. Pivot bearings or bushings get worn
4. Linkages from the steering wheel to the tie rod pivot connection get bent.
On the basic bottom of the line Craftsman riding mowers the tie rods are fixed and not adjustable. However if you look for a mirror image left to right of the tie rods often you will note that one of them is bent in or out... or is shorter than the other one. There are after market tie rods that are adjustable. This is over 40 years of experience talking here.
THe best way to do an inspection of steering is to place the mower on tripods so that the fram is being supported and not the steering components and then set the steering wheel to the straight position and inpsect ALL of the steering and suspension components for the front end.
Without your model number this is quite generic. With a model number I can show you a parts diagram by item number of what to check.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Testimonial: "thanks so much for your help..I'll do a more concise inspection of the steering components and see what happens."
SOURCE: my riding mower front tires
1) The tie rod between the front wheels is bent or the adjuster nut has come loose.
2) The plastic wheel bearings have gone to sh*t on either or both sides
3) The steering knuckles were never greased and their bushings are shot to sh*t.
4) The front tires have come off the rims
5) The front axle beam has been bent
Find a small engine repair shop in the yellow pages and have a person with know how put his eyes and hands on it, you will know within a few minutes what is wrong.
