Do you mean you didn't get them rebalanced or have them never been balanced? If they've never been balanced, then that's certainly your problem. Unbalanced wheels will easily cause a vibration at 55mph or even a lot slower.

Also, you need to check the angle of your driveshaft or pinions. Find the factory specs and try to get it as close as possible!

Yes forgot to post it, well after I got them balanced it still was doing it so I had my friend look at it and it turned out to be the bolts to the driveshaft weren't torqued down so it wasn't tight. He used lock tight and good as new no more vibration! So I will see you tomrw at the track!
