Perhaps your tire(s) is/are out of balance.

have the tires balanced and checked for broken belts and the wheels for bends.

I had the exact same thing happen to me. Getting the tires balanced fixed it immediately.

if the tires don't fix it, check for any damage done to any of the wheels. From there, I'd check your front suspension and make sure nothing is loose.

How bad are the vibes? Are we talking a little humming or full on shuttering?
