PS: Sometimes even at 80km there is hardly any vibration, once I drop say up to a higher or lower speed then once I hit 80 again it might be there. So it's REALLY random.

No difference if I'm cruising or giving it gas.

After about 110 even 150km not shakes, but then again could be going so fas that it just not as noticeable.

On a side note, and I have noticed this before but thought it was just road surface, but I kinda feel almost like a clicking/grinding feel on the steering wheel. I'm wondering if I have a bad wheel bearing? I don't hear any noise(unlike my old car when it's bearing went I could hear a noise).
Okay, well a few things here.

Since the steering wheel vibrates, it's a problem with the front wheels.
Since you've had your wheels balanced already, that is not the problem.
Are your rims hubcentric? Are the bolts the wheel lugs the proper size?
Did you clean the hub prior to putting the rims on? If there is light rusting on them, or oxidation that hasn't been cleaned, your car will suffer from the shakes too. A bad wheel bearing will be audible, you will hear a wobbling sound, especially while cornering. (it will sound like a wheel is falling off.) If your tie rods, and ball joints are both fine, then I would suggest checking if there is any warpage in the hubs themselves.
