New tire.

I had three of my tires replaced when the car was 400 miles old cause they couldn't road force balance them to get a shake out of the car. Today I took the car in cause I could feel a shake coming from the passenger rear side of the car. They said that the it was coming from the tire cause they couldn't road force balance it correctly. One a scale of 0-100, they say a tire has to be a 0-25 to be good anything 26 and above is bad. Mine was 25. They are going to replace it tomorrow.

My question is, could having a bad rim cause they road force balance to be off? I am wondering if they have to replace that tire again, cause it be the rim instead?
