Devastated!

Fellow 7 owners I hoped I might have solved my vibration issues with 4 refurbed wheels and new tyres at considerable expense only to find she still feels like I'm driving up a cobbled street,. I took the car in thinking it was a tyre issue, I was told that they were mis sharpen, old and I had some small buckles. Fare to assume this might be the problem

Many pennies later the car looks fab but at 55 mph, drives like it has square wheels. The wheels are original 19inch spoke wheels as fitted from new and the tyres are new Dunlop as recommended for the car, not run flats.

The weird thing is this, some months ago I ran over a small bolder on the neighbours lawn, slow speed on the rear right, the car drove like silk and thought nothing of it. 2months later the vibration started and my wallet emptied.

It the bolder was the cause I might have expected to feel the vibration sooner? Or might it have caused something to stress and weaken with time, I'm at a loss. Does anyone have any suggestions?
