Default Humming noise at hightway speed

Need your advice.
I have a 2013 535i M sport 62K miles with no staggered wheels, car have all 4 245/40/19
I got a new set of a Michelin Supremacy 3 run flat tires at Costco.
I was hopping that the ride was going to be smooth and quiet after getting a brand new set of shoes, but car is more noise than it was with the old tires, a humming noise at specific speed and it seems to me steering wheels shakes a little more than it used to with old tires.

Do you mean the Primacy 3? Tire Rack says they're supposed to be a quiet tire according to this. Run flats, as a rule, are going to be harsher to drive on than non-RFT, but the shaking and hum are something you should bring back to Costco for them to address. It's possible they never balanced them or did it incorrectly.

Also you said that the "steering wheels shakes a little more than it used to"? That sounds like either ill-fitting rims or you need a wheel alignment.

You are correct, Primacy 3,
Thank you for you quick response, I brought it back 4 days later so they can re do the balance but still nothing change, I should probably take into the dealer for a wheel alignment.

It doesn't need to be the dealer as long as the shop you use has a "Hunter" balancing machine and is experienced with BMW alignments.
