My TBSS has a vibration from the driver's side. I think it is the front. It only happens from about 42 to 48 MPH. It is stronger when turning right and the left side is loaded. I can feel vibrations in the steering wheel and it kinda sounds like a big propeller-driven WW2 airplane. I replaced the hub with a quality part (Moog), but the problem remains. Could it be the tire? What else can I check before going to the dealership? Thanks.

Swap tire to the opposite side or the rear and see if it still does it.

I think you're on the right track.. usually its the tires that are the culprit for vibration within a specific speed. How old are tires?

I found that picture on the Googles .... I've been running Continental Extreme Contact DW06 for a long time.

Tires are about 20 months old
WTF! well it could be that one of the tires is defective.. try doing like DJ suggested and swap front tires to the rear, don't switch side to side. and see if the vibration moves to the rear
