Default Vibration

I just got myself an 04 Ranger and when I get above 95km/h I get a bit of a vibration. I was thinking it could be my tires. Any thoughts?
Thanks,
James

Could be, start simple. Just get the tires re balanced.

If that doesn't work it could be bad tires, but definitely start with the cheap.

i could be a u-joint, when a u joint gets ''tight'', instead of ''loose'', they will vibrate at speed, i know it sounds weird but i have replaced u joints that were so tight because of rust and some of the needles laying the wrong way, that when the shaft is out, you cant move the joint by hand.
