If that doesnt fix it im going to take it in.
That's what would keep happening to me. BMW or someone else would take the wheels off, or just retorque the lugs, the issue would go away for a while, and then come back. The harder you corner, the louder and quicker the problem comes back.

Yep, the noise would only come on for me when I was running my Breytons + Hankooks. Went through last winter and this summer with two sets of different wheels since then, and the noise hasn't come back.
