Exclamation vibration at 50-60mph!?!

Hi LS4 Guys I'm new to the forum, you guys rock!!
I have a 2007 Monte Carlo SS:
I'm unfortunately starting my new thread with an issue I have. I just recieved my aftermarket 18 inch wheel and tire package(Exel DL-46 wrapped in N3000 245 45R18 Z rated tires). They are mounted and balanced, but at around 50-60mph, I feel significant vibration through the steering wheel and elsewhere. But at higher AND lower speeds it seems to goes away. Could it be just the breaking in of the new tires, bad balance, low profile!? what gives? thanks guys,.............

yeah, thanks neilownz for the advice but I just took it up to my good friends at a famous tire shop and we rebalanced them and she rides so much smoother now!!! Wheel Max is where I ordered these tires and they balanced them with some type of stactic mounting blah blah thing a ma jig! But we proceeded to take those pantsy things off and remount with the standard procedure and she rides good now!!! So maybe if anyone's thinking to purchase a tire package from wheelmax you would probaly better to just order them without them being mounted & balanced!! Simply because you may have to rebalance the damn things!

You might need a set of "hub-centric rings" they help to pretty much eliminate that 50-60 mph vibration.
