Vibration 70+

Just put on summer wheels with brand new tires, got my alignment done and raised my suspension... However the steering wheel is vibrating/shaking badly at 70+ any ideas?

The shop that aligned the car probably has a wheel balance machine. Basically they remove each wheel put it on a machine then add weights to compensate for where it is out of balance

Typically, wheels that aren't balanced properly shake worst at 60mph...could be that the tires were just quickly balanced and not road force balanced. I'd just have them double check them and go from there.
