what does "need star tyres" mean?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Come on mate BMW recommend tyres with a star on the side wall expert?

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated.

Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

I know that BMW recommends tyres with a star on them, but I wanted to clarify as your are not using any punctuation and being very brief with your correspondence so it is hard to understand what you mean.

Tyres will only cause this if they are a significantly different in circumfrence from axle to axle. Having a star has nothing to do with it, that is a joke.

the issue is most likely the diff or a rear suspension / subframe / mounting issue.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
