does the vibration get any worse when you lightly tap the brakes?

And is it coming through the steering wheel or the whole car?

I would suspect lower bushes, if not the rotors - which can be eliminated by tapping the brakes at 90-100kmh.

But yeah, if i was a betting man, i would go for lower bushes

Check your tyres again sounds to me like a seperated tyre. Just jack up the front of the car and rotate the front tyre slowly, check the wear pattern on the tread area if its seperated you will see a patch that is more worn than the rest of the tyre. You may also see a bubble when looking side on but not always.

the vibration slowly goes away when you slow down but it will stay there for a bit...it feel like it comeing through the car but also the whole steering wheel shakes as well with it....so i can say both to that....

there new tyres on the front but the back neew to have new tyres on then but all the vibrations seems to be comeing from the front...but as you said could be a bubble of some sort i had the tyres checked the front seem to be fine but as i said thay told me the back needed doing....

its just it geting real annoying when driveing....

Mate for the sake of 30 minutes (it won't cost anything either) it would pay to have a look anyway or take the car to a tyre shop and tell them you think you have a seperated tyre and they will have a look for you.
