Struts or terribly balanced tires

take to a tire shop so they can spin your tires to make sure u dint brake a belt in the tire, wouldn't reccommend 75 mph till you find it, if it is a tire you are probably riding less tread at high speeds therefore it goes away lol

Yeah i would say got to a tire shop and make sure everything is balanced. also ossibly wheel bearings. and it could possibly be the struts. start with the cheapest option and work your way up

mine was doin this. ended up having to replace bushings, steering rack stuff, rotate and balance, and front end alignment. sucked but was SO worth it

I have a 1999 BMW 323 that I just bought for my boy and it shakes bad, I was told it's either the Strut Bearing or do you have aftermarket tires and rims on your car?.....I do and I think that is my problem but not sure .....I need to put the old tires & BMW rims back on it to see if that is the case but I bought it with the aftermarket tires rims just recently but the guy told me it was the strut Bearing....How many have different tires & rims on there BMW that might help us figure this out?
