Thumbs down high speed vibration

its fine when im driving under 75mph but then it starts to get a little vibration, which keeps getting worse as i speed up. ive checked and fixed just about anything that might be doing this. ive got 4 new rims with 4 new tires. just balanced a month ago. alignment about 2 months ago. one new front wheel bearing and one new rear one. ill change the other two when school is over. the bearings are fine but i dont want to risk getting stuck away from home with a busted bearing. the last two cost me $600 to get fixed. im not sure what else to look for. the car just seems like its going to shake its self apart when i get up over 100mph. other than it is prefectly smooth under 70. the only thing i can think of is that the other wheel bearings might be going bad. is there any signs that one is going to go out. ive already checked them for side to side movement and they have none.

Does it make any grinding/rubbing noises as you turn either direction? The only other 2 things i can think of off hand are a bad joint some where (upper or lower ball, tie rod end, etc) or a bent axle. Those are some other avenues to check.

Warped brake rotors will do the same thing. I just swapped in big brakes and the vibration I had is gone.

I just got 4 new rims also, and i had the same problem as you.. Turned out the rims I bought diddn't come with center rings and I diddn't notice when I put the rims on the car. You might wanna take a wheel off and make sure you got the center rings with your rims, cuz that would definatly do what you are describing.

i pulled out the back seats last night because im getting ready to move out of my dorm and i need the space in the car. i was out driving last night and i noticed that i can hear a squeeking noise when i take hard turns. it sounds like its comming from the back of the car. so im going to check out the rear bearings again. it seems like they always start out like that before they go out.

i fixed two frozen rear calipers and that fixed the squeeking from the rear. i got a new front rotor but didnt get time to put it in this weekend. i checked just about everything on the car. i found a few things wrong but nothing that would cause vibration. mostly just some oil leaks. looks like i blew out another oil pan gasket i hope this new rotor fixes the problem, if not im out of ideas
