Wheel balance issues are usually cause of 60-65MPH wheel wobble.

A clutch can cause a judder but you would usually feel it at clutch bite.

Some people fitting a new clutch leave the drive shafts attached to the gearbox and swing the box enough to get to the clutch but I'm not sure if it is possible on an Aygo, this method can cause stress to the driveshafts.

Certainly something not right and most likely related to the work done on the clutch.

I would take it back to them to have checked as soon as possible.

Clutch not aligned correctly. They need to redo all the work. Clutch jobs are precise but often been done in no time and without necessary equipment, as a result- vibrations, noises and premature wear of the new parts. Mechanics then blame the parts quality where actually workmanship was the culprit.
