It could very well be that your tires are out of balance. Hopefully, the tire shop tightened the lug nuts/bolts securely. You might also have radial ply separation in one or more of the old tires - The glue breaks down at high heat (can be aggravated by running tires under-inflated) over time and the steel belts shift around inside the tire as you drive. You might also have a cupped or otherwise adversely worn tire(s). You might also have a bent rim - also can be caused by severely under-inflated tires. However, often when you get vibration at a certain speed (often around 40-55) and it goes away at a higher speed, it's a balancing problem.
