Hi, well my car used to shake all the time because of a bended rim so I put 4 new rims and 4 new tires on my civic with 167000 miles I tested it and it was kind of perfect with a little little shaking feeling when I was doing more than 90mph but I noticed a small left pull to the left so after a week of the new tires and rims installation I got a 4 wheel alignment, but my car now shakes when I do more than 70mph ( so its worse than before the alignment), if I go lower than that its perfect(not pulling at all), I don't know what is the problem! Thanks for the help

Sorry, does the vehicle pull or does it shake at 70mph?

If it shakes, try doing a tire rotation to see if that cures it, you may have a tire that is out of balance (yes, it is a possibility even with new wheels). If it pulls, check your tire pressures.

Then check the balance of the wheels again. Also, ensure the wheel nuts are torqued to spec and there is no rust on or behind the rotor that will create an uneven surface for the wheel to be torqued on.
