I'm certain that I've had more than one passenger car that had something odd about its construction. In my case, the tire would create odd vibrations, even after balancing. This was solved with either a different tire, or a different brand.
I've had a couple of people that worked in tire plants confirm that some tires are made badly. The bead which is formed where the two ends of the steel belt is fused can be particularly problematic, especially on low grade tires.
