Vibration passed 70 mph

Hey you guys so I've started to realize a vibration once I pass about 70 75mph

The faster I go the more it vibrates

I balanced all 4 wheels but idk it didn't seem to fix anything
Anyone else has a suggestion or a opinion or anyone else had this problem

Or aiming towards my tires maybe a tire is bad or I have no clue what it can be


A while back I felt this same thing and I got my previous wheels balanced and the vibration went away this time I went to another place to get my tires balanced and the problem didn't go away so I'm maybe thinking they didn't do a good job balancing them or idk

Does it go away at a higher speed?

Speed limit here is 70. My car is smooth as silk at 70. I don't know beyond 70 because that's above the limit.

Could be a bent rim. Tires could balance out ok but if you have a nice bend in the wheel you'll feel that at higher speeds

A lot of wheel spacers can also have feedback in the steering wheel, so that's why I asked if spacers were installed. I know that I get a little bit of vibration at 72mph because of my front spacers.

Had same problem, was told by shop all of my wheels were bent but two were much worse than the others, had those two straitened and it got much smoother. After switching to APEX wheels it has been very smooth since.

BMW wheels are very malleable, shop said they see bends on every car that is driven in the Northeast.

Additionally the owner manual provides charts based on 100 mph+ driving by tire size the correct psi, for staggered and square.

My car is 35 psi all around / staggered

Looks like you have identified your issue. Explains why it doesn't go away with higher speeds. Spacers will amplify the error, as you have changed the dynamics with a larger offset. Can you try a couple of different wheels on the front?

Regarding tire shops, there are those who understand a balance and other's who do not!

I had a bad vibration on a recent road trip. Pulled into a BMW dealership imagining the worst since I had the tires balanced by DT a few days before the trip.

Service tech came back. Was just the tires (and some control arm bushings getting old). Tech said one tire was over 15g off, and they try to get closer to 5g on the balance at that dealership.

Yup some folks just can't consistently do a decent balance.

That's going to be my guess. And/or in combination with your bent wheel.
I would pull the spacers off first and see if that solves the issue. Process of elimination.
