    Just wondering if anyone has experienced this. After a few laps the wheel starts rumbling (DFGT), left front is blinking green and blue. Reset session and the wheel is still rumbling slightly. Exit session, new car, new track no problem. Go back to the Maserati and it's the same, haven't even done a lap.

    This car doesn't have ABS and as you lock more and more the tyres under braking you're creating flatspots. The blinking in the tyre app shows that a part of the tyre is hotter from locking and creating flatspot. So with more the tyre gets damaged more you will feel in your wheel.
    edit. corrected word mistake.

    New tires no lock ups still happening. Even on a new set of tires it's still there but very slight.

    What are your wheel settings? Try with 100% overall force in logitech software and 0% min.force in the game settings.
    You should try with damage at 0% in the Assists page so that the tyres don't get flatspots if locked up. So try to drive the car this way and see what changes for your wheel.

    You flatspotted front left, that's why the tyre blinks green/red in the tyre app.
    The wheel's rumbling is another consequence.

    How can he have flat spots when he said the problem is still there when he goes back to the car and has new tires with no laps on them?

    Most probably he has mechanical damage set to 0% and he's not noticing flatspots.
    In any case, a video from the OP could clarify better the issue.
