Wow, that's kinda shocking actually. What rotors are you using?

'17 Fusion Sport, Magnetic 401A
(MKZ Cluster / TTR Garrett FMIC / Titanium Tail Lights / Black 10-spoke Escape rims / 5Hundred Painted Badges / Edge Antenna / Mondeo Door Sills / Redline Tuning Hood Struts / Ceramic Tints)
'14 Edge Sport AWD (Daily)
Previous: '10 Focus SES (Totaled, because people text and drive)

Just the stock OEM ones. Thinking back now maybe some of the potholes I hit were so bad they caused damage to the rotors.
I'm also wondering if I should go back and have them match the rears also.

Well this is incredible frustrating, the problem has returned again after driving the car around normally for the past 3-5 days. The night I took it back from the dealer I went out on the highway and drove around in the 70-75 range and noticed very minimal vibrations, the 'tugging back and forth' feeling in the wheel like it is fighting itsself was gone. This is the most annoying part because holding the wheel becomes fatiguing over time. I noticed tonight on a short 70-75 all of that back and forth tugging is back in my steering wheel again. I thought it was 100% the rotors but maybe I am wrong. Someone else here mentioned in the past they thought maybe taking the wheels on and off sort of gives a reset to the hubs, perhaps it just comes back as more miles go back on the car. Super annoyed right now.

If you didn't change any part on the car since then I don't see how it is not the tires.
They are really the only part that could (and do) unbalance just sitting around.

I'm thinking it could be hub runout or rotor runout again? If it wasn't fixed perfectly it might cause the issue to come back but who knows. I'd say I only put about 50-100 miles on before it returned. But if the problem is only tires, it wouldn't be present in both sets of wheels/tires. This was all on stock rims. I can try swapping wheels again but the dealer is just going to refuse to do anything with the aftermarket wheels on.

I didn't really hit any potholes or anything that should have thrown it off again.
