Vibration Noise over 60 mph

I get what sounds like a vibration noise at speeds over 60 mph. New tires,balanced tires.

You're hearing a vibration or you feel one? Tires can cause road noise depending on tread design or wear patters and also cause vibrations for the same reasons plus out of balance. Kind of hard to diagnose this kind of thing over a forum but a little more detail would help.

I had new tires put on.
Had tires and wheels high speed balanced.
Same sound on different freeways.
It's not a feel it's a sound.

If it's a new sound that started with new tires most likely it's the tires or maybe just one is defective somehow. Take it back and have them rotate the tires see if it moves or changes. Otherwise if it was there before too could be a lot of things.

I agree with @LuthWJ77 . If the sound appeared with the tires, it's the tires. If not, it could be your driveshaft, wheel bearings, etc. Does the vibration change with speed?

Noise starts at 60mph. Slower speeds there is nothing.

What I'd do next is check diff fluid level. If good take a look at driveshaft u joints. Those seem ok I'd probably pull diff covers make sure nothing is wrong there.

Yeah I'd be checking everything that's rotating. OP mentioned a noise / vibration in his first post was kind of leaning U joint but obviously it's tough to diagnose over a forum.

Here's a good source for answers to things like that. Additive depends on if you have limited slip or not.
