OVAL TIRE

My cars a 96 gt. It feels like my front tire is oval. Is this the lunging everyone talks about?

I've checked balljoints + wheel bearings+ tie rods.
Also it goes away after car warms up. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Tires are balanced too

That's why I just thought it was that lunging thing I've read about.

Tie rods are ok if they're tight, right?

Have no play at the 3 and 9 test or 6 and 12.

After your tire is warned up? Because if your car stays outside sometimes if its cold it feels like my tires are low if I left my car out. But my car is in the garage and it don't do it. Maybe you just need a new tire/s

I work at discount tire if there is one by you you can take it there and they will rotate them and check them for you. You can have them balance each of them a watch as they spin. Some tire compounds that are real grippy can flat spot during thee night and it takes a little driving to warm them up.
