you haven't said if its petrol or diesel so i'm assuming its petrol since your smelling sulfur sounds if you have a misfire causes could be plugs,leads or ign coil i suspect its ign coil these are common to go.

You may have to get your wheels re balanced, or you may have a tire gone bad. Check your tire pressure and have all the wheels balanced at a tire store.
The other thing you could have is worn front end parts, like ball joint, shock bushing or shocks. Try greasing all the steering linkage and see if the vibration goes away, which would indicate worn steering parts.
Start with the tire pressure and then grease all the front end parts, if the vibration still there. Then have the wheel balanced and check for wheel alignments.
Good luck and hope this helps
