The post about shaking while braking :lmao: reminded me of a strangeness my car has on cold mornings... When I first drive away after being parked overnight, there is a feel from the tire(s) like there's a flat spot - thud, thud... It goes away when the tires warmed up.

I have the stock sport 17"s, with bridgestones.

My thought was that the sport suspension transmits shocks/bumps as well defined, that it's just something I could never feel in other cars.

Anyone else had this happen?

PS - tire pressure is ALWAYS good...

I have stock 17's and have never had this problem, even in the dead of winter. I had one clicking the other day and found a rock in the tread :dunno:

Ok - I took the car to a local wheel/tire place (dealer was booked through next week) to have the wheels balanced. Just heard back that 3 of the 4 rims are bent. The damage is not visible, but there inspection shows it.

I bought the car as a CPO - anyone have BMW help them out with a similar situation?
