Tires are balance, still vibrating

So Ive been experiencing a vibration in my 2012. it sounds like a whirring noise coming from the front left wheel well. Today I had my wheels balanced FOR THE THIRD TIME! And I'm still getting the vibration and whirring noise. Does anyone have any suggestions or similar experiences?

Other info, both my brake pads and tires are new as of about 6 months or 8000 miles ago. Rotors are still stock and untouched.

Thanks for all the help guys

Make sure you are getting them road force balanced not just regular spin balanced it does make a difference. I am going through this now just got new tires and two of them bad and out of round with too much road force and causing shaking. 2 replacements are on order. These were good bridgestones also not cheapy tires like those forteras Just because it is a new tire doesn't mean it is a good tire.

whirring noise? you may have other issues maybe it could be a wheel bearing.

Re: Tires are balance, still vibrating

So this whirring noise just will not go away, no matter how I balance the tires or if i swap the fronts the the rears, etc. So yesterday i put my car up on stands, started her up and brought her up to between 20 and 40 mph. The whole rig shook. Something is messed up in my jeep. I got my mechanic to get under the car while I did it and although i hear/feel the vibration coming from right under me in the cockpit, he pointed out that the right rear halfshaft looks to be BENT and wobbling. Now im not sure if this will solve the issue but let's see if this is at least what is causing my rig to basically give me headaches when i take it out. I'm taking it to the dealer wednesday and telling them i don't want it back until this sound is gone.
