2013 Rubi wheel vibration

Bought a set of 5 rubicon wheels and tires that had 1300 miles for $900. Tires look bran new. I had the shop swap them with my stock 16 inchers. Upon getting up to around 60 to 65mph on the freeway there was a slight vibration in the cab. My son pointed out his shorts shaking. I didnt notice much in the steering wheel but there was a shimmering of sort. When i increased to 70 mph it seemed to smooth out. Just wondering if the shop did something on the lift or if they are needing balanced.

Take it to the local tire shop and have the balance checked on all wheels. It might just be as simple as a missing wheel weight.

Find a shop that can "road force balance" and have them balanced.
