    You could help us a bit more by telling us if the vibrations happen whilst driving along or under braking.
    Are you running spacers? if so, it might be worth taking the wheel off, then realigning and bolting it back together, it could be that you need your wheels balanced, but you say you've had it done not long ago....
    If the problem with vibration is happening whilst you are braking, then it's most probably warped disks or knackered track arm bushes... if it's the latter, it's more cost effective to change the complete arm than just the buch, unless you go for uprated items.

    balance issues normally happen at a certain speed, have you a bent alloy ??? hit a pot hole recently ?? or like jojo said if its under braking then warpped discs,
