    concerned with the number wheel weights on NEW front rim. Wheels purchased from local BMW dealer. Front left has (15) continuous 1/4 oz. weights Left rear has (12) continuous 1/4 oz. weights. the old wheels had no where near that many. Is this to be expected or is there a possibility of bad wheels from manufacturer? Any information will be appreciated.

    Really depends on how they mounted the tire. Because all tires have a heavy spot and if it is not matched properly it can make a wheel take more weight. Not that it's a bad thing as long as the wheel balances out.
