Tramlining and best tires for XR?
So, I've been driving the Aura into the office this week. I've noticed an uncomfortable tendency for ridges in the pavement to drag the car along with them. I've done some research and the term "tramlining" is coming up, where the ridges in a road drag you along their path. The car has the same tires as original, Goodyear Eagle LS2, made in 2013. Is this typical of the tires or the car? Is there a tire that plays better with the car?

Re: Tramlining and best tires for XR?
I also run my Aura XR on the factory-specified tires, and had a "better-than-average" experience with them, with respect to longevity.
Wet traction has been my only sufferage; however in Southern California, the car doesn't see much rain/snow. You probably see much much more wetness.
Tracking, on these LSēs seems about average..
If you elect to change to a different model (or brand) of tire, keep in mind that the car is designed to use a tire which turns 777 revolutions per mile.
Good luck. I wish you many miles of happy motoring in your Aura.
I hope this helps.
