When I first drive my 2005 SSR after it has sat in the garage for a couple days, the front-end vibrates for first 3-5 miles driving over 60 mph and then it smooths out. It feels like the tires are "out of round". Has anyone else experienced this?

Would appreciate your comments.

Cruise on....

The tires do get flat spotted if you drive it a while, get the tires hot, and then park it on the cold concrete in your garage. After they warm up from driving, the flat spots go away.

I think livin2B is right on. When I first test drove my car it had pretty severe vibration. Also felt the vibration two days later when I took her off the lot and drove her home but only for the first five or so miles. No problem since but here in NC I pretty much get to take her out every day.

My road up here has been so bumpy for the past year that I haven't noticed (or couldn't tell the diferance) any flat spots. Even after the new pavement was laid down all the vehicles vibrate the same amount, so I'd have to go with, The road just ain't flat. Once I turn onto another street (about 1 mile up the road) that hasn't been repaved it rides pretty smooth.

I was really impressed with the roads and highways in Clovis Ca. area on a recent visit at the Pelco factor. Like many country boys, it was my first chance to see where most of our groceries come from. I loved the weather and the hospitality.
