Mein Auto: 07 BMW 328 coupe
FYI- E92 Front, rear swaying/bumpy/rough ride - PROBLEM RESOLVED

I just want to share my experience with the front & rear swaying on highway or bumpy roads.
I own 07 328 coupe. I experience this problem for a month. My car wasn’t possible to drive more than 120 km/h. Every single bump on the road when I was hitting the car was flying left right and I needed to focus on my steering wheel so I don’t hit anybody. I was reading different topics about this problem (suspension, bump stops, spacers, tires too large too small and so on…). I took it up to the BMW dealer they check everything all suspension, NOTHING. I got my alignment done and still SAME.

I decide to change my tires Bridgestone Potenza RFT RE050A witch they were ok (one year old) with Hercules iRonman iMove. After the test ride, car was completely different, amazing handling and no more swaying…absolutely another car!!! I just want to share this problem with everybody, I never tough my tires can be a problem even they were one year old.

Enjoy your ride!
