Square tires

Anyone notice that when you park on these Pzero tires they tend to get flat spotted ? Or is it just my tires... hmm..

Then it's Bump bump Bump until they're round again...

I haven't noticed it, maybe you don't have enough pressure in the tires

Mine were seriously under-inflated when I got my car; only 24 PSI, recommended is 36. I only knew after OnStar sent me an email. I put 37 when cold and they are still 37 today.

I have not noticed: after how long parked.

I know this happens to my Super Swampers it is the Poly & Kevlar Belts in the tire. usually happens after a few day park and more in cold weather.
But is more of a Womp Womp womp.

I've maintained the correct pressure in the tires and the TPMS shows the same PSI value. If the Camaro is parked for 24 hours (or so) I'll notice the flat spots the first 1/8 mile of driving.

my pressures are fine, still have a bump one one side when sitting for over 10 hrs at work in parking lot... then they round up after a 1/2 mile or less..
guess it's just a thing to deal with

I have to retract my previous statement I have noticed flat spots in the tires after my car has been sitting all day wgile i'm in work. I have just noticed this recently in the last couple days but it goes away in a few minutes but there is definetly a flat spot when the tires have been sitting for awhile.

Yes, I have noticed this also, sometimes I do not drive the car for 2-3 days and it feels like flat spots on the tires but it goes away after a few minutes.

Yeah get that too, the temp makes a huge difference with such a small volume of air, when i first get in after it sitting for a while the tire press will be 32-33, check after driving a while they go up to 38-39.

Edit: guess I need to add a few pounds, anybody try using the compressor that came with the car? Noticed it had an "air only" setting.

These tires have a nylon overlay in them. The nylon overlay keeps the tire round at high speeds in high performance tires. They do tend to get a flat spot though when parked. A few minutes of driving fixes this as the nylon heats up. Hope that helps.
