High speed vibration

Ok so when the cars going above 80-85 then a vibration that you can feel through the seat occurs, not through the steering wheel but through the whole car kinda thing, not violent but its there nd kinda unnerving, any ideas?

Try anything to do with the wheels; tyres, wheel balancing or wheel nuts.

Have you had any work done recently, new clutch etc, s drive shaft that's been off and put on in a different position is a favorite for creating high speed/rpm vibration. other than that if its not wheel balance then engine mounts can cause this as well.

I had an high speed vibration on mine soon after I bought her. Turned out to be an out of shape tyre - was extremely dangerous apparently. The inside edge was deformed so couldn't see from normal inspection. Get your tyres checked immediately as catastrophic failure at high speed would not be nice...
