its like it got worse not better. wtf?

You need to make sure you do not have a bad tire with separated treads. Have a technician help you put the tires on a balancer. Then they can check before the weights are removed to see if they are out of balance or need to be replaced. If you’d like a second opinion have a qualified technician, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose the vibrations firsthand and suggest an accurate fix from there. Good luck.
