I have noticed in my current car that there was more tramlining when my non RFT Conti CS5 were wearing down near their limits which was greatly reduced with new tires. How old are your tires and how much tread do you have left?

Old and worn suspension components can also effect tramlining and your car is just about that age to start replacing worn parts.
Ok I just got new front tyres (non-RFT's), and WHAT a difference! I didn't realize how much driving joy I was getting robbed off till now. Thanks for the tip!
Tires are always one of the most important items to upgrade/replace! glad you figured it out!
