That in no way rules it out.
I once had mine balanced three times in a row before they got it right...

In fact, in 5000 miles they could easily now be out of balance, or have a wear pattern.

Do the vibs disappear when you remove your foot from the gas pedal at the same speeds? If yes I would say it's a driveline issue. If no then it's probably a wheel balancing issue.

it could possibly be misalignment as well. i'd have the whole thing done - balancing and alignment, just to be sure.
