Question about 'wheel wobble' and general tips!
I recently bought a 1982 BMW E24 and I love the thing. Only has 50K miles on it so hopefully I'll get many more out of her. Very new to the world of classic BMW's so just asking for some general tips and advice on what I should look out for. Also if anyone knows any good websites for parts or breakers in the UK it would be very much appreciated.
One worrying issue though.
When I bought the car it came with the original wheels as an extra because the owner before me had fitted wide set Msport wheels. It looks great even though it messes with the originality. My issue is that between 57 and 65 MPH (91-104 KPH) I get a lot of wobble on the steering wheel, you can feel the car wobble also, then after accelerating past it the wobble vanishes. You can still feel it a tiny bit at higher speeds but only if you are holding the wheel. Is it possible that the wheels aren't meant for the car? or maybe the previous owner hasn't fit them properly? I read somewhere about it needing 'hub centic rings'
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I an post up pictures of the car and wheels if that would help?
Thanks for reading
