vibration between 80 and 100 kmh

I'm having some weird problems with my car. All my suspension is new, shocks, struts, bushings, tie rods, ball joints, stabilizer bushing...got everything from bilstein. When I bought the car, the tires were in bad shape so I thought that's why I had that vibration on the steering wheel between 80 and 100 kmh. I changed all four tires, put some 225/50/R16 Z92 but I still get the vibration. Can anybody please tell me what I can do to fix that really anoying problem.

Are you sure the new tires were balanced rightly?

Thanks a lot Witeshark for answering so quickly. Well, the first day I put the tires, they did balanced them but it was well done cause when I realised the car was still vibrating, I went back there and they realised the tires were not balanced at all. They rebalanced them but I still get the vibrating. well, only thing, I think I feel it less tough.

With all those new parts, and the inconsistency of the tire installers, I think a rebalancing is the first thing to try.
