Ride: BF RTV ute

Location: Newcastle
NSW, Australia

Hey,
My BF2 RTV LPG ute has developed a vibration through the steering wheel. It only happens after driving the car about half an hour, then I get vibrations similar to unbalanced tyres through the steering wheel.
It has been balanced about 6 times and the front end checked by 2 different mechanics. Both of which I believe are quite competent. Sometimes it lasts a few weeks before going back to wobbling. I changed both front wheels but it made no difference.
It happens between 60 and 80kmh. The rims are the standard RTV steel rims.
Any ideas would be appreciated
Cheers

Any movement in the hubs/wheel bearings?

I know someone who had the same issue with a BA Wagon. They replaced front hubs, rotors and pads the issue went away. We don't know which fixed it but one of those components was the issue.

If you've already done hubs then maybe it's in the rotors?

I'm doing the rotors on Tuesday and checking for a stuck caliper. Wait and see
