New wheels vibration

So as many of you know by now I just recently installed some new wheels on my car and everything seems to be ok. However, I noticed the day after on my way to work that once I drive over 65 mph the car starts to have a mild vibration. Now, it only happens once I hit that 65 mph mark, anything below that it's smooth as a sail. Have any of you experience this? I figured it could be some alignment issues but I just want a second opinion. Thanks for your help in advance.

Does it go away above? tire imbalance is noticeable between 80-120KM/H. Sounds like your problem . Go back to where you bought em and get em rebalanced

It doesn't go away above, I didn't bought them off any store. It was a trade, they were already mounted when I got them. So you think I should take em to a shop to get them re-balanced then?

Tires need to be re-balanced.

Ya probably needs to be rebalanced.
Shouldn't be shaking when you drive.

my wheels were "balanced" when I bought them. the shop I took them to completely threw away all the old weights and whatnot and moved everything around. secondhand wheels are notorious for balancing issues. And balancing isn't to expensive I believe, much less expensive than buying a new set of tires at least!

Yes, I actually had that problem last week or this week. 55MPH was the vibrating point
got both front tires re-balanced yesterday and problem is gone. and now that is smooth again I can't tell I'm doing 55MPH

Will driving on the unbalanced tyres for about a week do any damage? I'll like to get it resolve as quick as possible but that won't be until next week.
