If tracking adjustments, tensioning, and guide adjustments don’t seem to help, it might be that at one time or another, your blade came into contact with steel. Even a tiny staple from where the lumberyard attached a tag, will quickly ruin a blade, and if it struck only one side of the blade, it would wipe out the ‘set’ of the teeth, on that side only. So the blade will try to follow the kerf of the remaining teeth, and drift to the other direction. A 1/4” width is just right for Ryobi benchtops. good luck.
