Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Galant
You need to have the tires road force balanced. This is a procedure that measures the high point of the rim and the low point of the tire .After they measure this they can index the rim and tire . A tire can pass a balance test and still have a wobble to or vibration . A major tire store can perform this procedure .From your description i bet your going to find out that it is a rear tire causing your problem.

You most likely have a belt separation in one of your tires. It could come completely apart at higher speeds. I recommend that you get this checked out and repaired as soon as possible. Give your tires a thorough visual inspection. Don't forget to look at the inside edges too. Many times this is missed because people do not get down and really look at them. If you see anything obvious like knots, bulges in the tread, or exposed cords, get that fixed immediately before doing anything else.
Sometimes you cannot see the problem by "looking" at the tire. In these cases, you can find out which one is causing the problem by rotating the tires front to rear one side at a time. Rotate one side and see if the "wobble" and vibration moves to the rear of the car. If rotating the first side makes no change, then rotate the other side. This will tell you for sure if it is being caused by a tire. If it does not change or seem to "move" then there is something else wrong. Let me know and I can give you other things to check if necessary.

I would have the front-end alignment checked. Also, have your ball-joints and tie-rods checked for wear. Worn or warped rotors can also cause a slight vibration. Jack up the driver's side front tire and turn the wheel by hand. While turning the wheel, check for greater resistance in any spot on the rotor. This would indicate warped or worn rotors. You may also want to check the factor minimum brake rotor thickness specification. Other than that, you may have a flat spot in 1 or more of your tires.
