Z4 Pulls Left & Right

I have a 2003 Z4 that has a tendency to pull to the right, then to the left. I checked all steering components and everything is tight and not worn. Any ideas?

Check tire pressure and do a search on "tramlining"

If you have run flats that will cause your problem.

I do have run flats. So I guess it's just the nature of the tires?

Also have the alignment checked, not enough toe in can cause this also.
