Guys, I'm not an expert on this by any means, bit IME, I believe the
alignment and the tires can have an affect on tramlining. My S4 with either
Pirelli P7000 225/50x16 or Firestone SZ50's 235/45x17 don't tramline one
bit. OTOH, the way the car came, with Nitto NT 450's, it was either going
left or right. I believe the toe setting can affect this. Any alignment
experts out there?
