I don't understand your post, I don't have summer performance tires on my car. The Turanza EL42 is an all season tire. If the tramlining was on a car with ultra high performance directional tread tires I would understand. I'm gonna take a chance and I will let you know if it helps..

It's good to hear that I am not the only one with the Turanza EL42. I also experienced the tramlining and thought it odd at first. I am more used to touring tires (my previous car was a 2002 530i) but after about 1k miles on the e90, I do not notice it any more. The change in car took a litle adjusting to but I enjoy driving the E90 much more.

In my Mustang I went from 245/45/17's to 305/30/18 in the back and 275/35/18 in the front. Tramlining horendous on uneven roads. Do you guys think it's the grip of the tires? Or the width?

It remains to be seen whether this is the right decision to remove them. Its a horrible tire and bridgestoneis giving me a new pair of LS-Z's. Which gets very high marks..
