Vibration when it rains ??? Anyone else have this

So I had a set of wheels put on my 7 and it feels fine until it rains , it feels like the wheels are out of balance and the whole car vibrates , I called the company I ordered from and they told its probably because its a summer tire does that sound right or like a poor excuse ?

I have heard winter tires creating vibration in summer because they have an ambient temperature, never heard of summer tires in rain.

Try road force balancing and see if it helps.

If they are directional tires, makes sure they are mounted correctly.

Turn DSC off/on to see if it reduces vibration.

I'm waiting for some rain but the road force balancing seems like a good idea regardless the tires are placed properly so ...

I have this condition on my Cayenne TT - I put Cargraphic rims on with 11" in the rear. I noticed a substantial vibration when driving in the rain, turns out the wide rims collect rain water in the inner circumference which throws the balance off. I can actually see the puddling looking through the spokes, poor drainage
