I'd check with another shop that does "Road-Force" balancing. There IS a technique to it and it IS possible that a tire replacement may be required since it IS possible to have a tire that is NOT able to be balanced. I recently had a "Road-Force" balancing and the car is smoother than it's ever been. It too, was recently balanced at another shop but still retained a slight steering wheel shimmy at 75 or so.

Maybe I need to make sure this was done for my tires. My only concern is that I recall having this issue with my stock tires before I had my Avon's installed.
I will call Discount Tire when I get a chance.
My vibrations are mainly above 80+ in any gear.

I had the same problem. Tires were balanced 5 times between 3 seperate dealerships. Finally got my selling dealership to replace all 4 tires. Car ran super smooth since.
