BMW 745I Wheels problems : 1.
I Recently Purchased A Set Of Four 22″ Sevas S-10 Wheels For My 2003 bmw 745i. I Live In Hawaii And Ordered My Wheels From Dnj Wheels In California. Dnj Shipped My Wheels And Tires To Me Mounted And Balanced, So When I Received Them I Took The Set To My Local Tire Store (lex Brodie) And Had Them Installed. As Soon As I Left The Lex Brodie Tire Store I Noticed A Shaking In The Car. I Felt It In The Steering Wheel As Well As The Seat I Was In. I Took The Car Back And Asked The Man That Installed The Wheels To Check The Lug Nuts And Make Sure They Were All Torqued To Spec. He Verified That They Were, And I Reported The Problem I Was Having. He Said That It Might Be A Problem With The Balancing And Or The Alignment. So I Had All Four Wheels Re-balanced And Had A Four Wheel Computer Alignment Done As Well. After All This Was Complete I Left The Lex Brodie Only To Find The Problem With My New Wheels Remain. This Is When I Joined The bmw Forum (bimmerfest.com) And Noticed That There Were Several Others Who Were Experiencing The Same Problems With The Sevas Wheels. There Are Also Several People Whose Wheels Have Actually Separated While Driving! All People Whose Wheels Have Separated Reported That Their Car Was Shaking, As Mine Is Now, Before Their Accident. This Worries Me To Say The Least. I Use My Car Daily To Get To And From Work Most Of The Time Traveling On Busy Highways. I Do Not Want To See Myself, My Passengers, Or My Fellow Drivers Get Involved In A Potentially Fatal Crash Because Of An Issue With A Wheel That Does Not Meet Proper Safety Standards. I Am Filing This Complaint In Conjunction With Several Of My Fellow bmw 7-series Forum Members Who Have Also Purchased The Sevas S-10 Wheel. I Understand That This Is An Ongoing Investigation And Would Like To Help In Any Way That I Can. Very Respectfully. *jb
