New wheels/tires getting vibration

Just purchased Apex wheels EC-7 9.5/10 w/ PSS 255/275. Had them road force balanced using the Hunter 9700, and today I'm getting a steering wheel vibration/trepidation at above 70 mph.

Brand new wheels and tires. I'm fuming.
I'm sure this is not normal.

I'm surprised to hear that this is a very common problem. I'm going back to the shop to get them on the Hunter machine again.
