Please someone HELP me come to some resolution. First of all let me tell you all the things I've had repaired or replaced over the last 8mos or so. I have a 1992 525I with 225/45/17 on the front and 255/40/17 on the rear, with that said I realize that this is 2 sizes above the standard 15" tires. I replaced brand new rotors, brakes, control arms (left and right),and a new hub assembly. The thing is funny each time I have changed one thing or another or even just an alignment and a rotation and balance, every time some one does anything to that right front wheel the vibration gets worse then it calms down again until something else is done to it. I've had the wheels checked to make sure they weren't bent and they wasn't. Its is so weird to me like now between 45-60 the shimmy is unbearable to a point the radio goes off for a split second and then back it seems as though Im in an uncontrollable earth quake. I am the original owner of my car and I take very good care of it mechanically but this one has "stumped" me to no end.. Please if anyone out there that can make a suggestion as to "what next?" I would be most grateful. My thoughts are as follow: Tires are just too big or I was told to get the strut/tower brace. You tell me:
