    So after getting my new wheels put on I for some vibrations at highway speeds. Took it to have them rebalanced and the Guy said one of the front ones has some hop... meaning its not a perfect circle shaped. Wtf do I do about that? It still vibrates at highway speeds and it did it before I got the new shoes...

    That would be considered a manufactures defect. You should take the tire back to where you bought it and discuss it with them.
