The Wobble

Hey,


I drive the M on sunny days which we haven't had much of lately in Cincinnati. Two weeks ago I park the car in the garage perfectly normal. This morning I start it up and begin driving and notice a wobble from 10 mph up?

I actually got out thinking I had a flat tire but everything looked ok. It almost seems like its out of balance? Any ideas?

That's your answer. If you leave a car sitting for so long, tires will deform a little. Not the end of the world, just drive it around - it will go away.

I recently got Yoko Advans and they flat spot like a mo fo. I agree with the rest. If it goes away after driving around a bit, that's what it is.

It seems with these cars, letting it sit for too long is just not a good thing. If anything, take it out once a week or so and let the oil get to operating temps, then park it again.

You should also check your tire pressure with the tires cold.

Put it up on jackstands. And just run the engine once in a while

I just "overinflate the tires" and have not had any issues after 2 stored winters.

I would NOT just run the engine once in a while. If you can't actually drive it, then do not bother starting it. Again no problems on this end with filling the tank with fuel stabilizer added.

Add a battery maintainer and you are good to go.
