Would the fact that the car mostly sits on an incline in my driveway? Nothing too steep but it's a bit of an incline make it worse? Also, the fact that it got worse when I installed the shocks make sense.

When I checked the pressure the other day they were all between 32 and 35 PSI. I'll make sure tomorrow they're all at 37.

Yeah, I forgot to say - I have Bridgestone Potenzas (RE970 AS Pole Positions) which are basically the same thing as the Conti DWS. I read that because they are performance tires and have more nylon in them that the Potenzas tend to flat spot more but I don't know if this is true.

Like i said, this only became noticeable recently when it started to get really cold. It could have been happening before but at a very mild level and I just thought it was the crappy Jersey roads lol

i find the DWSs flat spot much more that the oem contis
