Vibration on a 2007 BMW750LI

I bought custom 22" wheels and tires for a 2007 BMW 750li. I wanted the staggered look so I had to get hubcentric spacers on the front to get the desired look. I have taken the car to 3 different places to try to solve my vibration issue. The car vibrates when reaching speeds over 40 mph. When the factory wheels and tires are on the problem does not exist. Can it be the tires on the custom wheels causing the issue and not the balancing? Help me PLEASE!

SOURCE: BMW vibration in steering even after alignment, balance and control arm replacement.

Does it vibrate all the time at 60 or only when you apply the brake?

SOURCE: I have a BMW 3 series..318SE..03 reg..problems Im having

Per your description, I would take a look at your suspension components, tie-rod ends, steering rack mounts, ball joints and wheel bearings.
After the "wish bone" busings were replaced, was the car re-aligned? If the toe-in is not correct, it can cause the condition you describe.
Be very carful driving until you root cause the problem as you could easily loose control of the vehicle from a steering component failure.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: vibration

Step one would be to have the tire/wheel assembly "road forced" balanced. Not a tire locations have this technology but it will definitly pinpoint or eliminate that aspect of the problem. All balances are not created equal, have the road forced.

SOURCE: Car shaking and vibrating at 55 mph. and does it again at 65-70.

1.You could be right, check the flexdisk and the wheelhub, since you have already check wheel balance,
wheel alignment, and the steering wheel.
2. Have the following check as well;
a) steering linkage assembly for worn out joint parts.
b) propeller shaft (cross bearing, center bearing)
c) engine mount for defects.

What the best tires for 2007 bmw 750i


Per TireRack.com, there were four tire size options for a 2007 BMW 750i starting at 18 inch going to 21 inch wheels. You will need to know what size you car currently has and whether they are staggered (narrow front/wider rear) or the same front/rear. You will also need to know if they are "Run flat" or regular. The site has good testing articles and ratings of various brands. The Uniform Tire Quality Grade number rates tire longevity (higher number lasts longer 100= approx. 7,200 miles) and the letters are for traction (AA is best) and temperature (A is best).
Continental Extreme Contact DWS is available in your size works well as an Ultra High Performance All Season.
