Is your car lowered? are you rubbing at all, or is it just a vibration

Montizzle 325i,

The tires are not rubbing and the car is at factory height. I am riding on 235/45 ZR Pirelli rubber. I think it maybe the ZR tires. On the autobahn it rides smooth. At 50-120MPH it is smooth. It is that 0-45 that is rough. It is just at slower speeds that I feel it. I don't feel it in the steering wheel. It is almost like when you have a truck with mud tires type feel.

I just got the car checked out by a local German mechanic I know. He stated he did not notice the vibration and took it for a test drive. He related it was fine and that it was normal due to the width of the tire on certain surfaces of the roads here ie coblestone. I had the really thin factory tires and wheels on it before so I guess I didn't notice it much. That would explain why it was smooth on the Autobahn and rough in the villages.

I love running it on the autobahn. I am going to miss that once I move back to the U.S. Good thing my car is U.S. Specs.

Thanks for your help.
