I've been riding: Wheels- 22x9.0 Tires- 265-30r-22 for over 2 yrs now. Never an issue.
35's wont make it on front without rubbing, though.

So you have 65-35-22 on your BMW. I can't get mine to stop vibrating Luke they need balanced.

You probably have a bad or wrong sized HUB RING! BMW has a very particular size for the hub ring, even a millimeter off will cause vibration.
Especially with aftermarket wheels.

Did you mean you're running 35's? Hell I have 30's and still ended up modifying my plastic tire well because they were rubbing
ever so lightly when I turned sharply to either side. I had to re-lining the back of both tire wells.
