I'm getting steering wheel vibration at about 75 to 80 mph on my 96 outback. About a month ago I had the tires completely rotated and balanced. I hadn't really had a chance to drive the vehicle since then and I noticed I'm still getting the vibration at the same speed. The Les Schwab near me believes it has to be a tire or a bent rim. The drive axles feel tight with no play tie rod ends seem fine it could use an alignment. But is it possible that I have a bad tire and the shop that balanced and rotated didn't catch it or just did the best they could and decided to throw back on the car anyway. I've never had this issue with a vehicle before any help would be great thank you.

You paid for balance.
Return it to the people you paid.
Have them re-balance this time paying special attention to hops and or wobbles as it's spinning on the balancer.
Many times the tire guy just shuts the hood on the balancer, let's it spin without ever looking at the tire to see if it spins true.
Alignment won't help your specific issue.
