Only two suggestions to help you out. If you have steel wheels on your car, I would almost bet that this is the cause of your vibration. Steel wheels are notorious for being out of round. If this is the case, I would suggest that you have the wheels balanced by someone who has recently had their balancer calibrated. We once went to a dealer with tires on steel wheels that were balanced to 0 (completely balanced) and found that their balancer was out of spec by almost 8-10 grams in both the static and dynamic dimensions.
If, however, you have alloy wheels, I would once again bet that they are NOT your problem. Alloy wheels are cast aluminum and are then machined to give the rim a completely round surface. It almost never is out of round. If this is the case, I would assume a problem with either the tires or possibly a suspension part. This is, however, rare.
Hope I could help.
