wheel balance could be out, even though you have checked for missing weights.

check that all the wheel nuts are done up tight. alot of workshops dont have their torque settings setup right.

lol. that explains alot then, i dont own one but figured it was controled via a regulator or something. i got new tires put on the wifes car by a reputable wheel company, the next day i took it into work cos mine was getting work done and noticed that both front wheels were ready to fall off cos all the nuts werent done up :?

I would take it back to whoever put the rims and tyres on and tell them to fix their mistake...assuming a workshop did it for you and overtightened the wheels. If you did it yourself I guess replacing the studs is the only way...have fun :D.
