Feeling it in the steering wheel usually means the vibration is on the front axle.
What you can do is swap the spare wheel on and test to see if the vibration disappears or not. Try it on both sides.
You can also swap wheels front to back and see what happens. You may be able to pinpoint it down to a wheel or say that it isn’t the wheels after this.

It can also be the ABS system if one of the wheels has a different circumference then the computer would try to slow the faster moving wheel with the brake.
This can cause vibration in the steering wheel.
Interesting. Are you confident the system wouldn’t just error instead of braking?

He told me to make sure that there was not a large difference in the tread and that I should use the same manufacturer to ensure the diameter is the same.
Some BMWs are known for this when running certain tyre sizes. Some tyres can wear too small for the systems tolerances. Rare though.
