Subject: RE: <E30> shaking
My E30 shook at 60 MPH and above. After 4 new tires and front rotors the
shake was still there. I then had all 4 wheels reconstructed and painted.
No vibration at all now.
The rebuild was $500 for 4 iS wheels. This included straightning, painting
and clear coat for wheels and center caps, dismount and mount of tires and
high speed balance with internal weights.
The work was done at Ye Old Wheel shop in Elkridge MD.
I bought the car from a BMW dealer. Seems they collected the iS spares from
other trade ins until they had a set of 4. The problem is when most people
bend a wheel it becomes the spare.
