When I leave my car parked on the street for at least 2 hours outside in the blistering cold, I notice that when i start the car up and drive off, my car seems to be hitting a bump on the road followed by another bump like every 3 feet. But actually it is flat spots on the tires because my street has been newly paved with asphalt which gaurantees smooth pavement. As i drive on the tires warm up and the flat spots are gone. Anyone else have this problem? This only happens when it is freezing cold outside.

Yep, all the time, that is the problem with the low profile tires. You will get use to it. Hey post a picture of the car. I have never seen one that color.

I havent noticed this problem yet, but then again i havent driven my IS in a week due to the snow, ice combo...im not even going to attempt to drive it on the stock tires.

Sorry Kerr, I have no pics of my car. But, I know someone else has posted pics of a GGP IS.
I am also in the northwest suburbs mccarlin. I live in Des Plaines...right off of touhy. I wish I had another car to drive during the winter too, but i'm just a poor student :p.
