Unhappy vibration in tires when accelerating while crusing

I am getting a weird vibration in my tires during cruising acceleration. When I approach 40 and above, as I cruise and touch the accelerator I feel a vibration in the steering wheel. I found some weights missing from one of my rear tires; could that be it?

Any help will be appreciated.

thanks

that or wheels are bent

try switching you tires, as in put rears up front, and fronts to the rear

that might solve the problem - if so, you know its the tires, if not - it's something else

thanks! I actually went to get new rotors for the front (different issue). The owner of the shop mentioned the guibo and center support bearing. I am going after those now and see if this solves the issue. I can't swap tires since my rear tires are bigger than the front.

thanks though

I also just changed the lower control arm bushings. I wonder if I missed something with the adjustment or something.

I was just informed that it was the cv joint at the end of my driveshaft. They say the whole part needs replacement and the joint is not serviceable. Anyone dealt with this one before?
