: You may be very correct. My last tires were pirelli and I kept getting the tires ballanced, they would be OK for a week then vibrate again. The bushings looked fine the BMW dealer said the bushings were fine, the rotors were fine, etc,etc.
The Tire store NTB finally marked my tires and wheels on the inside and installed the tape on weights. When I went back with the problem the tires had rotated on the wheel about 1/4 to 1/2 inch causing them to be unbalanced. I do tend to drive enthusiastically but that was rediculous. My solution was to remove the Pirellis with only 15,000 miles and replace them. So far the new tires have not moved. I have the BBS cross spoke (basket weave) wheels.
