2002 996 C4 Premature antilock brake activation

Brakes

No question [from me today], but I hope this experience will help others. For some time I have noticed very poor braking, very early antilock activation along with significant steering wheel shimmy during hard braking. I expressed this concern with my local shop and the local Porsche dealer. Both said this was normal and there was nothing wrong! I just replaced my front tires and discovered that the wheels were both bent. Now that they are round again...my brakes work great. You would think I would have had a noticeable wheel shimmy at highway speeds but I did not.
