Slight Steering Wheel Vibration/Custom Rims

Good day all!

I'm new to this and was wondering if anyone had any answers/suggestions for my issue. I just purchased a Grand Cherokee and the dealer installed 22" Rims/tires. Problem is I have a slight steering wheel vibration while driving, usually around highway speeds. Is this a tire balancing issue (I know they were balanced, they have the little metal sqares on them) or something more, and can it be corrected?

Thank you all,

NuGC

Welcome to JeepGarage!! I would have them re-checked for being balanced or check the tires that they aren't oblong at all (common problem on some aftermarket atv tires)
