You could have a problem with the CV joints, brake rotors, bent rims and yes, even a slipped belt on NEW tires. If you have the ability to do so, jack up the front end, put the vehile on jack stands so that none of the drive wheels will turn, then watch the front wheels while someone else gets behind the wheel and runs it up to the speed where you have the vibration. You can also watch the tire/wheel at lower speed to see what is moving in ways that it shouldn't.
