Question Wheel vibration at speed

I have a 2000 Interpid that I bought off-lease. Ever since I bought the car, there has been a vibration in the front end as I get closer to 60. If I go over 75 (not that I ever would) the vibration seems to diminish. I'm running a set Kellys with <15,000, and had one tire and a wheel replaced. Neither the dealer nor the tire guy can figure out what's wrong. I can't tell which side it on either. The tires have been rotated every 6K (every other oil change; makes it easy to remember).

You don't say how many total miles on the car, but if alignment and wheel balance haven't helped, and you're sure it doesn't maybe have a bent rim, one or both CVs could be your problem.

if your tires have worn unevenly at some point, an alignment and balance will not help until you replace the offending tire(s).

Front end vibration

The car has around 73,800 miles. A rim and two tires have been replaced. Rotation and alignment have not helped.
