Since the tires were just put on you should have the wheel balance checked along with the trueness of the wheels and tires. This covers about 95% of the problems.

Hi. Most likely it's a wheel balance issue. Take them back to where you purchased them and have them rebalanced. If that doesn't solve the problem, it may be either a tire issue, or the shop may be using the wrong balance. Basically, tires are balanced DYNAMICALLY, with weights on both the innermost and the outermost area of the wheel, or with a STATIC balance, which is usually just one weight placed at the area of the wheel where the average of the inner and outer imbalance occurs. Static is not a true balance and often causes vibrations. Because your car takes a special kind of clip-on weight in order to balance the tires dynamically, my bet is that the shop used a static balance.
If the rebalance doesn't solve the issue, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll tell you what the next steps are. Good luck and hope this helps!

When you get new tires put on your car, they have to be balanced. If you do not, your tires will simply be out of balance. No tire is perfectly round, and there will always be one point on a tire that is heavier than the rest of the tire, thus this causes a vibration. Balancing tires is as simple a taking you car into a tire service center such as Les Schwab, America tire co. , Firestone tires etc. and it only takes 30 min. If you got your tires at a dealership, take it your vehicle back to them, after all it was they're responsibility to do this in the first place. If you go your tires from Les Schwab, they will balance and rotate your tires for free. I do not know what a dealership or other tire service center will charge for balancing, sorry, but i cannot imagine they would charge more than $20.
