Wheel Balacning Problem (archive)

I have a new 1999M3 that has had a front wheel balancing problem from day 1. There is a significant vibration in the steering wheel starting at 60 thru 100. After repeated attempts to balance the dealer replaced the original Dunlops with BF Gforce. This helped but didnt fix. He then replaced the Goodriches with Pilots. This helped more but still didnt fix. The vibration is some what less and now starts at 80 thru 100+ but is still there. The dealer drove and said this is normal. I dont think so and would like any input I can get on simular problems so I can go back and get it right.

My next try is to have the wheels balanced at a nondealer shop that does on car balancing to see if this gets it and if so I'm going to assume its a rotor or hub problem. Any Thoughts on this idea??
