Need some advice......... got some BBS LM's as you may or may not know, and initially had S03's on them. 19x8.5, 19x10 - 245/35/19, 275/30/19

Fit seems fine, but there was a terrible steering wheel shake over 50 mph. It gets worse with speed. Seemed like one of the wheels was out of balance, no problem.

Went back and got the tires swapped to Yokohama AVS Sports, same size (another story), and the fronts are out of balance. Everytime they balance it, drive, and come back, it's out of balance again. They recalibrated the machine and balanced them 3 times, everytime it's a little better, but still not right.

This is a great shop, so lets not go there, but they seem to think the hubcentric ring that came with the rims is not thick enough. When put the wheel on the car, you can move it up and down a little, hence the vibration at higher speeds.

Has anyone had this problem, and in particular with BBS LM's?

Thanx
