Mein Auto: E90 328i
BIG PROBLEM WITH WHEEL & TIRE SETUP E90! Steering wheel vibration at 40mph-above!

Hi Everyone.
Hope you guys can help me with this!

I have a big issue with my current setup on my E90. 328i Sedan Reg Pack non sport pack ( came with stock 16s)

Problem: Steering wheel is vibrating at 40mph and up. (Left to Right) and noticed more vibration.

I just purchased New TSW Nubringing Wheels Matte black (18x8 all four wheels) & NEW Michelin Pilot Sports 2 (Run Flats) the fronts being 225/40/18 & the rears being 245/40/18 from Discount Tires all at the same time almost 2 months ago.

I been getting constant wheel shaking and had them REBALANCED & FORCE BALANCED! 4 different location told me the tires and wheels are fine.

Tires are even and none are cupped or damaged.

Had Hubcentric rings on them but still had same issue, not currently dont have them on.

Can i please get advice on how to stop the shaking of the wheel, the faster i go the harder the wheel shakes left to right! Dangerous !

Do i have the wrong setup ? or need to go to squared setup?

BTW: Discount tire is currently trying to figure out what the problem is. The manager just ordered me 2 more 245/40/18's to put in the fronts replacing the 225s.

Thank you !
