I would go over the tires as well. It's really easy to have one out of round or with some broken belts from a pothole or hard bump. It would still balance good but it will be like riding on square tires. If the tire removal made a big difference those are the first step. Then go over the brakes, they would cause a shake or pull if the rotors were warped or if they have thickness variations, then suspension items being loose. When you are driving all of those spinning parts from the axle, hub, rotor, wheel and tire create a lot of force. I have driven past cars with tires so out of balance they looked like a basketball being dribbled, but inside the car they didn't even notice the problem. Usually as you get to the center of the mass it creates less force so the biggest item is the tire, then the rim, then the rotor and finally the axle and hub, but if you have a bad wheel bearing the entire assembly will move and shake. An out of balance tire with a bad strut can make it feel like you're driving a paint shaker.
