I had a car doing that years ago, turned out my brand new tires were out of round. Jack the front end up, set up a stationary reference point and rotate them. Back in those days they just sort of milled them off.

What speeds do you have these vibrations? Do they go away above or below a certain speed? Do you feel it in the seat of your pants or the steering wheel? Post some more info. Good luck.
