That don't matter. I had brand new tires and rims and my 540i shook like a MF at 100 to 120kmh. Replaced all rims same problem. It was the make of the tire for my car that represented the problem.

rear control arm bushings. get them checked out. if they are cracked and worn you will get a vibration (shopping cart wheel effect). like the other guy said get your old wheels put on and see if the vibration is still there. did they clean the hubs when they changed you wheels?

Get the tires balanced with a quality high end balancer with a "road force" application.
If you go to a BMW dealership; most if not all have them. After the balancing is done they drop a wheel down onto the tire and spin it up again. This measure the road force to determine how much rebound the tire is creating against the road. Rims and tires are not perfectly round. an experienced tire guy will first wind the rim up on the balancer to see where it might be out of round. less likely with high end products. Then take the tire and mounts them to try and off set any slight out of roundness on the tire. They do this to lesson or if not eliminate weights. if the road force is high then this most likely will explain the vibration you are getting at certain speeds. Rebalance the tires with a proper sophisticated balancer preferably at BMW or a high end tire shop.

Good luck!!!

well adam,

the shop said that the front two tires were not beaten properly, basically were not softened enough to pop properly in place and the left front hubring was wrong size... everything done, car token to 220 and not even a minimal shake... its great
