Question tire problem query

so I bought 4 used tires, continental contisport for my civix dx. now the car has vibrations at high speeds. the steering wheel has a shimmy(?). it vibrates left to right about 1/2 inch. its almost as though the tires loose their balance at high speeds?
talked with a mechnic, he thinks the tires are probably bad, and maybe belts have seperated. he says, either there were balanced right and the tires are defective, or the tire installers didn't know or do their job.
any input would be appreciated. I will go back to the tire store and see about their customer service this weekend.

find a shop with a hunter GSP9700 ... they will be able to diagnose your problem ..... and by the way belts very rarely seperate in a modern tire
