Are they standard wheels? If not then maybe hubcentric spigot rings went missing during refurb?

If your car was alright before the wheel refurb,just get the wheels balaced again,they dont always get it right.

Worth checking the wheel face where it meets the spacer and also the spacers themselves ?

There shouldn't be any paint on the wheel face that meets the hub or where the wheel bolts seat. Often refurb outfits will leave paint on these areas.

Have you used the wheels before with the same spacers and it's been smooth?

thank you all for replies,i am going to remove wheels to inspect surfaces and purchase some spigots which it did not have from the start.i am going to have them re ballanced to due to the amount of lead stuck to them and on two of the wheels there are weights directly opposite each other which didnt look rite.

The rears will likely need spigot rings but the fronts might not (but not sure what wheels/offset they are though as you haven't said).

Did you run spigot rings before and decided not to this time?

First steps would be to rebalance them properly and fit spigot rings where needed. Even with that you can get vibration as the spigot rings are often not thick enough because they allow too much tolerance. You may be ok if they have put paint on the centre bore though to make things tighter.

All sorted,i took it to a well recomended tyre and wheel centre and after inspection realised that the front wheel inner diameter is smaller than the rear so the hubcentric spacers on fronts were good but on the rears they needed spigots to centre correctly.i dont know why the rondells are like this but lesson learnt,get the right spacers.
