out-of-balance Seicento SX

Hi there,
I'm driving a FIAT Seicento SX, model 2002, 55KW, ABS, tires 165/55 R13.
The car is out-of-balance since I got it about 3 month ago.
FIAT actions so far:
1. they balanced the wheels
2. they replaced the tires
3. they replaced the rims
4. they replaced the complete powertrain (means gear unit, drive shafts, etc.)
The problem still exists.
The car's still out of balance starting at about 80km/h if cold outside and starting at about 130km/h if warm outside.
My feeling is that it is related to the tires because they replaced them with 155/65 R13 for testing and the out-of-balance nearly went away (except the out-of-balance "noise" which was still there).

Has anyone made the same experience?
What was the solution fixing this problem?
Many thanks!

Holger Martens
