Grooved pavment for me does the left and right thing. However me and my brother replaced a steering rack on an old dodge and drove it to get an alignment and it did the same thing until it was fixed.

The reviews on tire rack do not do it justice, it is that bad of a tire. I had cupping on one tire and the others were almost to the wear bars at 43k. The Optimo 747 got great reviews and is a consumer reports top choice and i picked up a set of 4 and after 600mi on them they are quiet and great in rain so far.
