Thanks for the input. I've been chasing one vibration or another since new and I've spent a ridiculous amount if time trying to resolve it. Let me add, the new tires resolved any front end vibrations I was having with the Forteras. The front end is planted and no shimmy at any speed even while the vibration is present. Alignment was done three weeks ago.

Leads me to believe its a problem in the rear? I wondered about warped rotors too. Anything else that can oscillate under there?? Exhaust?? Is it reasonable to just road force the rears? I know one shop I contacted only offered the service for all four wheels which I found odd.

Before the vibration sets in the drive quality is fantastic but once it creeps in, it's there for the duration of the drive.

I'd try the road force on the rear tires first. Other things can cause this, but it would be odd for them to only show up after prolonged high-speed driving of that length. On the other hand, your tire pressure will be steadily increasing as the tire warms over that timeframe (up to a point of course).

Any shop can do this on just the rear. Any that refuse to do this are just trying to get more money from you.

Thanks again. I'll have the rears done next week. I hope this solves it.
