Question Rear end shake

Had a blow out on a front tire last week. Bought two new tires for the rear and had the rears put on the front. Now at 60mph + the ass end shakes.
Any ideas what this could be?
I checked the lugs and all are tight. Tire pressure is the same on both back tires. Seems to be more the passenger side.

Was the rim damaged in the blow out? Possible defective new tire, such as tread separation. New tire was not balanced properly. Have the tire shop check out these possible problems. Should also check to make sure the rim has no snow attached throwing out the balance.
