Front or back, does it increase with speed, does it go when you turn the steering wheel, have you had the wheels balanced, did you get the propshaft balanced?

its coming from the front,the wheels are brand new and have weights on them but going to get them balanced again at the weekend to rule that out.the propshaft was on the car when i bought it was going to have a look at it but its a mission to get anywhere near it,as said im going to balance the wheels first before i dig deeper,it increases when you get faster.

I had it once before and it was a flat spot on the tyre due to standing. So Jack it up so the wheels are a couple of mm of the floor and give them a spin.

Hit my 5 posts again LOL, check your engine mounts, for being loose or the rubbers having sheared, sorry no idea if this is a new build, new buy etc.

Check to see if you have a rubber doughnut at the gearbox end of the prop, they have a habit of breaking up after 30 yrs!
