New Wheels - Balancing?

Hey all,

Fixed up my suspension (new control arms, bushings, tie rods, springs and shocks). Drove away from the mechanics with my winters and didn't notice any real vibrations on my ride home (on the highway).

Got home and put on my new rims (Style 68s) with new tires. Notice a vibration above 80 km/h or so. Wondering if my wheels need balancing. I figure that's the obvious problem? Could it be anything else.

I'm pretty certain I didnt feel anything in my other wheels when I had em on. May have to put em back on and go for a drive.

Balance them if you didnt do so before putting them on

Also watch out if the rotation is right, check the arrow on the wheel!
