problem #1

May 012001


  • miles
Both the left front and left rear tires have developed soft spots/bubbles in the sidewall. Authorized dealers claim damage from road hazard. I have noticed other Z3's with similar issues on these tires, and do not believe road hazard to be the cause. Direct correspondence to Michelin remains unamswered.
