Its your tires. Have them balanced.

What vibration you HEAR (feel it in steeringwheel or not), a piece of loose plastic, a bolt, in other words what sort of noise?

Check front Tires
Damaged front Rim.
Get them balanced.

May also be caused by bad lower control arms.
Check bushings and ball joint.
