Cause of that was a warped rotor.

Car has 37K miles on her and I do brake fairly hard. Lots of stop and go traffic in northern NJ for my commute.

Thing is, that she seems to be riding a little rough. Also the steering wheel seems slightly off-line when I hold it to keep her straight.

Any ideas? Wheels out of balance or the alignment is off? Tires have also been rotated recently.

Only other thing I did was put in a K&N air filter (regular box style, none cone) but that wouldn't have any effect on the ride, would it?
Only thing I can thing of is alignment. Did you balance the new tires when they were installed?

I get mine aligned and balanced every 2-3 months and it rides as smooth as the day I got it.
