But I noticed after the wheel swap my car seems to stutter or delay when I'm driving in 1st and 2nd gear around 2k rpm. Don't thing it's my clutch slipping or anything since it never happens with the 19s but just started to happen with the 18s.

Any clues what can cause that??

Car has dinan s3 package
So tune
Oil cooler
Recently walnut blasted
And have no lights at all besides my tpms.
I have this same problem with my car.

Bone stock 2012 e92 M sport with 18" wheels.

It seems to be more noticeable when I accelerate slowly. It's feels like it's bouncing due to a bent wheel, but since it only happens around 2k RPM I don't think a bent wheel is the culprit. It is most noticeable in lower gears, but I think I've felt it in 4th gear on a very smooth highway.

Edit: mine is a 6mt rear wheel drive
