Vibrating Rims!!!

Wow i need a lot of help!!!! Should i go back to stock or should i sell my rims and get better ones for like $5k!?!?!?! My wheels start vibrating a 60mph and get increasingly worse when i get higher and its very annoying! If you guys have the same experience and fixed it with better more decent rims or went back to stock..... please let me know!!!!

What else has been done to the car? The easy things to check.

1. Have the wheels balanced.

2. If suspension work has been done, get an alignment.

The car already had the alignment done because the previous owner put them on and balanced them as well.... he had a problem with the vibration as well and so he did the aligning... this was a couple months ago. i can probably go and check them if they were balanced again but i don't know how good that will do me....
