Okay... Being a moron, I was driving a little too fast in a parking lot and scraped the right side of a curb that looks like _| . It didn't do anything to the body, but my rims got scratched up. Now my Bimmer wobbles whenever going straight at any speed. I don't know what's wrong with it and I don't know what to do. I thought about tightening up the lugs, but that didn't help. I then thought about the tire pressure. Would that help it at all? Maybe the tire lost some pressure or something and it's causing the wobble... I don't know, heh. I just want to get this fixed ASAP because it's a pain to drive like this.

hey, hoff's brother here.....i think more so along the line of bent rim, he said that it is pretty tight while sitting still, that means that it wouldn't be a tie rod or a bushing, but could be minor enough that it could, i think more so a long a bent rim, at first thought balance, but he says all speeds, which when out of balance, you'll notice b/c it happens only at certain speeds.

hey, nice chic, wife, g/f, model? heh, i'd like to get my wife posin like that on my shaggin wagon, lmao, is that her in the banner too? i want to make some banners, maybe you could show me some good info on creations? thanks....

I would say bent rim also, pop it off and throw on the spare - see what happens.

I just placed a bid on an awesome deal of the exact same rim I have plus an extra tire for $51. Hopefully I can have it by next weekend and I'll see if this would solve the problem. It doesn't matter if the rim isn't the problem because I gotta replace the scratched one anyway. :P It looks like crap right now.
