2010 535i Msport package. My steering wheel is pulling and making slight jerks towards the right. It happens when going slow and fast. When I'm at 70mph there's also road noise. Any ideas? My car is in the shop two or three times a month!

Theres no way we can diagnose something like that will that much little information. Get an alignment, let them check bushing and control arms that would be a first step.

BMW is saying it's just a bad front tire. I hope they are correct, getting new tires tomorrow but it's hard to believe that a tire was causing so many issues.

a bad tire can cause that, but most of the time it doesn't. I'd go to an Indy really. Dealerships' mechanics dont have direct contact with the costumer which will almost always lead to mechanics that throw parts at the car and leave it to the sales rep to deal will letting you know the car will cost 4000$ and it might or might not work. Indy shops are almost always the safer and smarter bet on a used vehicle.
