159 Ti

Potentially daft wheel balancing question

I have recently bought two acceleras to put on the rears of my 159 ti from Camskill, they arrived and looked fine and I got a local garage that I do trust to put them on a few days ago, they didn't charge me anything for this which I thought was nice

However! On the motorway last night I got up to about 80 and realised a bit of rumbling that definitely wasnt there before

Now I'm either assuming it's the tyres or wheel balancing

My question is (as I dont know the ins and outs of it all!) can putting new tyres on throw actual wheel tracking?
also, having had some issues getting my car properly tracked/geometry done, can pretty much anyone balance the wheels for me and it should be fine? (in theory) or are the Ti's 19" alloys more difficult?

Cheers guys!

When tyres are replaced, the wheels have to be rebalanced. I'm guessing some of the sticky weights may have fallen off inside the rim.
