that could tire balanced, but i also had a buddy with two bent rims and that gave him a horrible vibration at about 55-60 mph.. i was drivin behind him one day and his car just started cutting back and forth and it looked like he was about to loose control. hopefully its just tire balance cuz thats alot cheeper to fix

My rims are fairly new so that shouldnt be the problem. But ive already had my tires balanced andIve had the damn thing at Ford for a week and they told me they couldnt find anything wrong with it.

It could be like MantaDreams said and be a tire coming apart inside but still look good. If all your tires are the same size try putting one of the rear tires on the front. If the vibrations stops you know which one is doing it. I bought a new set for my Ranger and it did that. They tried 6 times to balance it and never was fixed so they finally replaced it.

wheel bearings, or tie rod ends could be a factor, get it up on a jack and wiggle the tire up and down and side to side at all angles if there is play then it is either one of those. is this happening on acceleration or decell? and is it auto or standard?
