hmm... 3 weeks ago. workmanship should still be under warranty... maybe an error in installation??? Yes, you should complain.
depending on the kind and quality of rotors used... there have been cases of rotors that are not exactly "correct" coming out of the box. (i.e. mass produced rotors are resurfaced after casting on a mill; whereas, turning a rotor on a lathe produces a "truer" straight line)
I have a friend who owns a shop here and absolutely insists that even new rotors should be turned on a brake lathe to check for trueness before installation...
RE: tires and rims - ask that the tires and rims be DYNAMICALLY BALANCED at the speed u say the vibration occurs. Many shops jst do static balancing because it's cheaper for them, labor-wise and equipment-wise.
