    Had a similar problem with my wife's CRV. Had the wheels balanced by a garage with a Hunter roadforce machine. Vibes are gone.

    If you go to tirerack.com and check their vendor list, they include the equipment each vendor uses. Go somewhere with a roadforce machine.

    Sounds like you could use a Road Force Balance.

    See if the shop who did your tires have a Road Force Balancer and have them Road Force Balance your wheels and tires, or use this link http://www.gsp9700.com/pub/search/findgsp9700.cfm to locate a Road Force Balancer in your area. Just put in your zip code to find the nearest one.
