You don't have anything added to the tires like "Slime"" do ya ? That could effect the balance . But once their balanced that should be good to go . Maybe the shops balancer isn't right . Try someone else .

Dodge had done all my tire work, checking pressures, rotating tires, etc.
when i had a service right around 23,000 miles, i was told that it was time to rotate the tires again, so i told them to go ahead & rotate. The next day i had a job, i drove about 400 miles & i went into the dealership & told them the tire shake was so bad that it caused my hood to shake & made my arms a bit tired. They took it into the shop the next day & i guess tried several different things, i saw the tech drive by on the street several times. Then i was told that they had fixed it, as soon as i hit the highway, i knew that they had not fixed it. I drove to Discount Tire, told them what had occurred, the whole story. I then asked their opinion, they said that they would have to check it out, but, i was leaving on vacation the next day & had them re-rotate the tires & i had no problem.
Now i am going back to Discount Tire & i am going to have them pull ALL the weights on those 2 tires & re balance them from scratch
I have not hit the sides of the tires or rims against anything, so they can't be damaged, i have the 20" chrome clad rims & tires that came with the Ram

Default Tire balance

Never been a fan of Michelin tires but they may not be the problem.

Try to find a shop that has Hunter GSP9700 road force balancer. Hunter's web site has the locations. It is absolutely the best way to balance a tire. Out of round tires are spotted immediately.

Also, I live in Houston and Discount Tire absolutely sucks. Years ago, they were fine, but not anymore. There are 3 stores close to my home and I would not go to any of them again. If I wanna get screwed out of that much money again, I will buy a hooker.

The Coates XR1800 series balancers can do the same thing; they look for radial and lateral runout and match balance the tire to the rim.

If the tires are balanced and the truck still vibrates you may have to look at the front Hubs.
