your tires are developing flat spots because you leave it parked for extenced periods of maybe a week on the same contact surface of the tire, or from you're tire being under inflated.

+1. also, this depends on the brand of tire. some are more prone than others. what is your tire brand, and pressure.

Do you have Pentosin or ATF for PS fluid? I have seen cars with both (not sure how). Check the fluid level on initial start when cold and make sure it's not empty with the engine running until it heats up.
