    That's one of the things that I've ended up doing. That particular wheel is in the back of the car the vibration seems better, but I still feel a shimmy in the car. Again which points to a damaged wheel. I also tried to explain this to the dealer ....

    Honestly if I were you, I would just ride it out. If it's just a crap tire, it'll be fixed once you need new tires. Just because there's no point in buying a new tire when there's still plenty of life left in it. On the other hand though if it's a rim...either buy a nice summer set and use the stocks for winter, or buy a new rim or whatever. When you get your tires balanced some balancers have an option to road test and measure rim runout which would actually tell you if it recommends a new rim too

    Thanks ...

    .... I'm currently in the market to get some 18x9 rims and new tires this spring.
