Trouble with 328i steering

I changed the front driver side tires and since then..whenever i drive past 80mph...the steering wheel rattles pretty bad...but when i steer slightly towards the right(passenger side), stops you think its cuz i didnt change both front tires or is my tire pressure not the same for all four tires...maybe thats why it rattles when i go past 80?? i need serious help with this..thanks

Sounds like that wheel isn't properly balanced. Try swaping wheels from front to back, see if that fixes it.

catalyst. is an unknown quantity at this point
Send a message via AIM to catalyst.
Rebalance the wheels, if that doesnt work then replace the control arms and CAB's, use ones with better bushings then stock.
