3686RE: [bmw e28] Wheel issues?
- Jun 16, 2005Dear Andrew
Check wheel balance and warpage on tyres. If its not that then it would
be these rings although I have no ideas what they are.

I recently picked up a set of 16" Borbet Style H wheels with Kumho
tyres. Since fitting them, I get a shudder in the steering wheel
somewhere around 60mph. If I get up to 80 or 90 it lessens
significantly. Under 40 is fine. When I bought the wheels, the
dealership said that I needed hubcentric rings with these wheels. When
I went to pick the wheels up, they said they were out of hubcentric
rings (which they agreed to include gratis) and that their mechanic said
the rings weren't necessary. He left a phone number with me saying to
call if anything unusual happened. Well, at around 60mph, the travel at
the top of the steering wheel is about an inch, so I called him, left
messages, no response.
Is the problem I'm having likely a result of not having the rings, or
could my wheels just be unbalanced?
