    Usually, the imbalance is due to several possibilities; incorrect static balance, incorrect dynamic balance, bent rim, tire tread separated. If everything else checks OK, then you may consider to offer a price for the vehicle and offset (discount) by the amount required to repair the imbalance issue - keep in mind this may require an entire new set of wheels and tires - possibly several thousand dollars.

    I would agree with Jimm, also try to check the tire it self it may be oblong.
