Hi, I have a 2001 Buick. We just replaced the front tires. Shortly after that we noticed the car vibrates at around 45 to MPH, after we get past this mph the vibration stops.

The mechanic double checked the front end and everything is tight. He also checked the tires, one was slightly off balance but not enough to cause problem, he still correcte

2003 Saturn Ion vibration begins at about 60 mph. Tires are good and in balance and show no signs of uneven wear. Had tires rotated as well to see if problem changed, it did not. Had local mechanic put the vehicle on a lift to inspect control arms and ball joints. He indicated everything looked ok. He suggested a problem with the tires but I had already been to Discount Tire (where I purchased the tires) and they found nothing wrong to indicate a tire problem.

I just put new tires on it, made sure they were well balanced, the vibration didn't go away. The vibration is still there when I put it in nuetral and coast [engine at idle] through that MPH range. If I accelerate hard through that MPH it still shows up. The vibration is not resonating through the steering wheel.

I have a 05 Cadillac Escalade and the sterring wheel shakes when I'm driving on town streets and on highway. I brought it in for service....and explain to the service people my problem.
