I didn't think much of it and after driving about 80 miles I checked my wheels and 2 of the lug nuts on the rear driver side wheel had come loose (they were twistable by hand). I rechecked all the lugs all the way around and tightened them back down. Then, just last night I was going to the same friend's house and it vibrates still, but a different kind of vibrating. It gets extremely violent when I go from 80-90mph. If I keep it at 75 it's hardly noticeable. But now the wheel makes a high pitch scratching sound (like a squeal tab on a brake pad).
Bent hub? Bad wheel bearing? I haven't taken the wheel off to look because of the weather. I'd just like to see what someone else thinks.
