2008 E81 Cattle Grid Feeling

Post by Ktmpedro220 » Sat May 19, 2018 12:37 pm

Any ideas before seeing the Indie. Started driving the car today and it feels like I'm constantly driving over a cattle grid which I'm not. No issues until just now. At higher speeds there's hell of a vibration. Had a quick look at the tyres and wheels, nothing obvious. It's there from pulling off.

Jack it up and check for buckled wheels, loose wheel bolts, egged tyres, wheel lost weights, blown damper, seized caliper.

All worth a quick DIY check before taking it in.

Well. Quick update. More fool me. Rear drivers tyre, inside had a baguette size side wall bulge. Tyre completely gone. Thanks again for the advice Marco.
