All four lugs line up with no problems right?I had a stud break of on one wheel because the hole was just slightly off center.That little bit caused bad vibs up front.
if all else fails use regular tappered lugs on the two UNDRILLED holes to locate and hold the wheel.then use some flat lugnuts(or backwards lugnuts) on the studs where you drilled through the rim.Then just tighten them up tight as you feel comfortable(IE before the the threads strip)

You NEED to check all the bolts connecting your front drive train to your car. I'd bet money that a bolt has backed off somewhere. pay close attention to the cross-member bolts

and unbalanced tires will not cause bad vibrations.
I can disprove that statement anytime you care to witness

Swaped tires front to back and it got worse. Gonna do balance and bolt check today, thanks for the input guys.
What size tires? Used? off of? Radial or bias?
If the symptom changed after moving the wheels and tires, I would say its wheel or tire issue.
Similar to what was mentioned you can only use the two lugs that were NOT drilled, leave the others off for a short test drive to check your holes. If it still has the wobble then you could have a bad tire, separated tread, balance issue etc.
Radials don't much like being rotated the opposite direction late in life either.
