    at what speeds? does it seem to vibrate more as the speed gets faster? it sounds like your wheels may need to be balanced or your tires may be feathered or cupped.  what condition are the tires in? what does it feel like when you begin to brake?

    It starts to vibrate at 65 mph. I just purchased the tires not too long ago. It still have 90% or more of thread. I don't have any reason to believe the tires may be out of balance. I also have replaced the u-joints just a few weels agp. Brakes feel normal when braking, at any speed.

    That is the speed that out of balance tires start to cause shake or vibration, have then rebalanced and never assume anything about these types of problems , this goes 2X if you just came in to possession of the vehicle..

Have the front tires checked for a separated tire cord. Also have the font end checked for worn parts. Other sources are worn driveline parts like CV and U Joints.

    My tires were replaced not too long ago and still look new. Replaced the u-joint a few weeks ago. Also replace the link between the steering and tie rod end (forgot what it's called). I also had an alignment about 3 months ago. Sounds like I just need to take it in for a front end check. thanks for reponding.
