Quick Q, before I got to war.

I picked up a 307/sottozero winter wheel/tire package from a BMW dealership two months ago and installed them about two weeks ago. I set the pressures to 32/35 f/r in accordance with the manual for the tire size.

After installation I noticed the car had a slight vibration above 90km/h and I found the car tended to wander or "tramline".

I chalked up the vibration to a poorly balanced tire and the tramlining to lower tire pressure and taller sidewalls.

I took the car to my local dealer yesterday to check the above issues and the dealership stated the tires are flat spotted and I they won't do anything about 'em. They advised to go back to the original vendor (BMW dealership)

OK, so let me get this straight... BMW winter wheel packages are not covered by the manufacturer but by the dealership. what the hell!

Anyway, I don't intend to drive back and forth between dealerships to have my genuine BMW parts fixed properly.

Should I go directly to BMW with this issue? Thoughts?
