      Check if the wheels are hub-centred or not.

      The weight of the car should be borne by the wheel hub and not the lugs.
      The hub hole in the wheel should be a snug fit on the wheel hub. In case
      there is a gap, you will need adapters to fill the space.

      Cheers

      hey guys.

      i've got an '85 535i that has a horrible shimmy up
      front when i approach 45 miles per hour. i've had both
      right and left lower tie rods replaced and the idler
      arm and bushing with it. the whole front end really
      shakes hard when i hit between 45 and 50 mph. i do
      have hartge 16 inch rims on it. they've been on the
      car the 3 years i've had it. would that cause the
      shimmy? anyone ever run into this problem? thanks.

      andy.
