In Reply to: Effects of Extremely Hard Braking............ posted by Xzibit on September 22, 1999 at 01:36:01:
: Today as i was driving on the freeway, i was driving around 70mph, a car cuts me off and brakes immediately and i think he was trying to cause a fraud accident, thus i had to literally slam on my brakes as hard as i can to prevent rear-ending this fool, so i came to a screeching halt and the ABS came into action. thankfully i didn't come close to touching this car in front of me. But what i'm now concerned about is if there are any possible problems which may have evolved from this rigorous braking, such as tires, brakes, suspension, tires no longer being perfectly round, etc...??? thanks very much
: P.S. the brakes are outstanding!!!
The only real possible concern of an occasional stomp on the binders is flat spotting the tires due the the wheels locking up, but ABS will prevent this. You need not worry, many people put their BMW's through much worse "abuse" at driving schools with no effect.
