Are your 18" tires on non-BMW wheels? If yes then do you have hub rings that are correct size? I had similar problems with my 18" tires on Petrol 18x8 wheels. I ended up using 12mm spacers that had a taper design near the base and this made it fit more centric to the wheel hub. Big improvement.

Yes the directional arrow points to the front of the car, seems like the obvious causes of shake can be ruled out, you mentioned the tires were used, did you buy the tires mounted on the rims? If so the rim could be off round, not balanced or one of the tires could be plugged/patched causing it to shake. Other causes could be tread de-laminating or damage to steel cords...beyond that I'm out of ideas.

ESC_OFF,

I think I found the problem...

the lug bolt is not tight enough....

I have to re-tight it and it improved and after the trip back to office this morning, I have to re-tight it again!! I dont know why...

So I just bought a torque wretch and set it to 88lb-ft and going to re-test it on my way home.

Toni8284-

If you have plastic hub rings then you may be pinching it between the wheel and the hub. This has happened to me. I had to replace the hub ring. I hope this helps.

what is the hub ring? sorry... I am a noob on cars...

Is the original OEM BMW wheels had hub ring on it?

I think the VMR wheels are BMW fitment so they should be the same size?

ESC OFF, can you confirm?

The diameter of the wheel hub is 72.6mm and the diameter of center bore of the BMW wheel on the 1M is also 72.6mm therefore no hub ring is required.

My Petrol 18x8 wheels have a center bore diameter of 74.1mm. This means that I have a space of 74.1mm - 72.6mm = 1.5mm that the wheels can be off center when the wheel is attached to the hub. The hub rings come in different sizes. For my situation I need hub rings with outside diameter of 74.1mm and an inside diameter of 72.6mm.

Thanks for the explain. I checked the VMR wheels 72.6mm so they should match perfectly. So I can rule out this as my solution.

since I used my torque wretch and on my way to office this morning, I still have a little vibration on the steering wheel when driving over 70mph.

So I guess we rule out the hug ring and lug not tight enough... the remaining solution will be balance of the wheel/tire?

Look up 270M wheels, page 12.

BMW AG sells two different (complete!)tire packages both on the same 270M wheel. The winter tire package is the same as offered for M3's.

YKW is the manufacturer. BRM-10 (They look slightly different than online photos) The guy told me they were 18x8 20MM front and 35MM rear offsets

Were you not waiting for a January Delivery?

I was but let my allocation go to someone else because I missed the cut off deadline for colour and I wanted to change it to VO. Now I have my eye on a used 1M.

Just an update on this setup. The front fitment using a 15 mm spacer is perfect. The rear fitment appears to be the same as OEM. The blizzaks perform quite well, particularly in terms of stopping capability. So far I have had no problem climbing fairly steep hills covered with packed snow/ice. Of course the torque can easily overwhelm the rear tires on any surface, including dry asphault, so caution is always warranted.

Here are some pictures of my winter setup. Nokkian Hakka 7: 255/40/19 for the back and 235/35/19 for the front. Mounted on the original rims. Fit really well. Excellent grip. Yes its spikes.

My new baby with winter tyres. I have also a X5 40d as a winter tool, and an E93 M3 (DCT, Eisenmann, Kw 3 etc.) as a summer and a track car. I don't use the M3 in the winter but this new born baby I'm going to. The M3 I'm going to sell when the snow melts.

I haven't had the change to drive the 1M when it's not snowing but I already love it! There is so much going on through the back wheels that I have to push the MDM as soon as I start the engine, otherwise the car won't move anywhere in the snow or if the road is icy. And when the MDM is on the back feels great, enough slide but not too much. The 1M feels already more of an M3 than my -09 135i manual ever did. It was always moving and felt unstable even with 18" summer tires but this 1M feels super stable.

I took these 270M wheels from my M3 (track wheels) and put Continental Winter Viking 5 tires on them, no studs. And they are great. I had an E90 M3 with Conti "central european" winter tires on and they were rubbish. They don't work here in Scandinavia at all, but were ok when it was dry. In the pictures 270M look boring but in reality look much better. 20 mm spacers on back are a must! Could paint these wheels...

thr: Is you roof matte or gloss? Why did you not include the lists? You know where you fit a roof box. I think it look strange not to include them? I consider to go black gloss roof to match the rest of the car. AW and gloss black or gloss carbon. Matte just works if the rest is matte or it looks busy.
