Skipping / Shuddering on U-Turn?

Anyone notice a skipping / shuddering feeling from the front when making a sharp turn / u-turn? I've had same since new, thought it was normal due to the wide 20 inch wheels, but it's annoying and I'm wondering...

Thanks for your reply!

Have you noticed it since new?

Have you ever complained of it?

What size wheels / tires do you have?

Have you ever noticed it on any other car? If so, which?

Are you serious!? This is a 'known' characteristic of xDrive!?

I have two full-time 4WD SUV's, both of which don't present same.

If so and had I known I would've gone non-xDrive and made sure to have all-seasons.

My '94 S500 (RWD) w/ all-season Michelins performs as well, if not better than my 750Li xDrive w/ performance tires in snow.

Not sure how any 'xDrive' model is allowed out of the factory w/o at least all-seasons...?

Defeats the purpose (excluding MX5/6 and M550d xDrive).

First you should never ever drive on high performance summer tires in temps below 35 degrees F (most say 45). You should especially never drive in snow or ice conditions as they are rendered completely useless. Now that I see you have those tires in this cold weather I'm willing to bet that's what it is. Just slipping on a tight turn angle as the tires are pretty much hockey pucks at these temps lately.

Thanks for the input Kar Don, but this occurs year-round, regardless of road condition / temperature.

You mention xDrive; what have you heard / read? Please explain. Thanks!

I did mention xDrive because my X5 and 2011 535i did that when I did a very tight u-turn when I lock the steering wheel over. I think the 5 series did it more... this happens to me on other AWD cars.

Hmm. My Range Rover and Lexus LX do not do this. Thanks for your help though!
