I live in the Seattle are and I have noticed the following on my new car:
1. If the road is uneven and if a front tire hits a ridge, the car has a tendency to dive left or right
2. When driving on a grooved road, the car also seems to dive to one side. When correcting it, it sometimes dives the other way.


Is this usually and is it because the front tires are so wide?

It's common for low/wide profile tires to pull when they hit crowns (uneven) roads while driving. Happens on my 330ci zhp w/18's in the front. Just get used to it
