Default vibration in Hankook tires

Anyone else feeling a vibration in the Hankook ventus S1 noble 2 tires.
I've had the tires balanced and alignment checked. still feel a vibration or wobble a most speeds.
I see Hyundai replaced all the Hankook ventus S1 noble 2 tires on the Genesis because of a vibration. Didn't have to on the Equus because that is not the tires they use on them

I only had them a short while ( 2500 miles) before I changed to my winter tires .In the spring when I change back I don't plan on keeping the OEM Hankook but switching to s dedicated high performance tire. Gene you bought the K900 with some miles on it .Have you thought of simply changing the rubber ?

Default changing rubber

That is what I'm thinking of doing Just hated to change tires when they still have 8/32 on front and 7/32 on rears. I also have free tire and wheel replacement, so going to see what kia might do before I change them.
Still trying to decide if I want Bridgestone, Michelin, or continental tires
I'm not sure yet if it is a tire or a wheel, will let kia sort it out.
Love the car

my new dealership referred the problem to KIA tech department for review.
The dealership is trying and have even sent me message updates on how
they are following up for me.
If I was sure it was the tires and not a wheel or something like that, I'd
just buy a new set of tires.
They balanced the tires with no problem so who knows maybe something
else going on.
I'm looking at Continental extreme Contact DWS 06 tires or Bridgestone
Turanza serenty plus tires. Both have great ratings for our car.

Maybe good news, my new dealership ask me today to leave my car with them to do measurements
on the tires. KIA tech dept. was aware of the problem with tires wobbling on the Hyundai Genesis.
Turns out they were the same tires as on my K900.
Was told they were going to be replaced for me
might give me new faith in KIA
Service manager contacted the tech dept. on my behalf, as he said KIA is aware of lots of things
they don't even tell the service managers about.
Tomorrow they take my car and give me a loaner, last time they gave me a brand new car as a
loaner just for my 15,000 mile service.

OK good news on the tires, KIA replaced all 4 tires. They tried a road force balance and 3 of the 4 were out of spec.
I got new continental extreme contact DWS 06 tires. Feel great on the car.
Earnhardt KIA could not have been better with me, they didn't have a K900 or Cadenza as a loaner this time,
But gave me a new Optima to drive. They treat the 900 customers like we are really luxury car owners
Can't say enough good stuff about that dealership. Think they deserve a thank you.
