22s and steering problems

I have a 06 750li with 107k and I have some 22s on it now, I have had 2 alignments and it is still pulling to the right. Can someone give me some suggestion what it could be because I get vibrations when I get up to about 60mph? I am thinking it could be the control arms and the ball joints that could be bad.

If they are a used set of rims ... mostly likely they are bent

They were brand new out of the box. At first I didn't have the hub rings on and that was causing the vibrations, once I put those on it went away but now it has come back. I have tried changing the hub rings and it is still has the vibrations. I have had the tires speed balanced and road force balanced.

That's a tough one. The easiest thing to do is try your factory wheels to eliminate anything with the suspension. You can get brand new rims that are bent. The one thing I don't like it that your rims are not hub centric
