About a month ago, I got a flat tire on one of the front tires of my '01 330. So, I replaced the front tire with the full-size spare and have been driving on the spare ever since (got the flat tire repaired but not using it).

While everything felt fine for the first two weeks, I can now sense a vibration in the front tire that I replaced. This vibration can be felt at all speeds, but it's more pronounced at expressway speeds. Also, a periodic noise can be heard from the front tire that I replaced as I'm driving. I've checked out the tire tread and nothing is stuck in it.

Is a problem like this correctable by having my wheels balanced? I'd think that the spare tire is balanced from the factory. So, it's odd that I'd feel a vibration after two weeks on the brand new spare. Does anyone know?

Thanks

Get the wheel rebalanced. Maybe one of the balancingthings have fallen off.
