When you checked runout after the Michelins went on, did you check all four wheels or just the original position of the one originally left loose? Maybe that wheel is off enough to be a problem (regardless of shop #2's assurances) and if it's in a different position now after the new tires and various rebalances and you only rechecked the previous position... I imagine you checked all four, so I'm just throwing that out there to make sure that possibility was covered.
I'd still be wondering about the one damaged from being left loose. Can you post some pics of that, so we can see the damaged areas?
Can you try swapping tires front-to-back and see if the feeling changes?
You mentioned jacking up the rear and checking runout - I guess the loose wheel was on the rear when you left the first shop?
