Terrible vibration on xd rockstars

I am getting a terrible vibration when driving over 60mph with my rockstars. I got 20x8.5 wheels with +10 offset;275/55r20 tire. I originally put this set up on my stock set up and had the vibrations. then i did a 2.5" BB lift, still had vibrations... I went to the local tire shop and they rebalanced them, but suggested I put on spacers. I got 1.5" spidertrax spacer and i am still getting the same vibrations and am about to go back with my stock wheels & tires.

I want to get bigger tires but don't want to spend more money with this awful vibration as it is a daily driver.

Does anyone have any suggestions that may help eliminate the vibrations?

Is there a chance that your wheels are bent? It happened to me, and I had to buy new wheels. Now, my tires balance much better.

Google hunter road force machines.

You want them road force balanced and the machine will measure run out of tire/wheel.
The machine will tell you if a wheel is bent or tire out of round.
