My mustang was vibrating!

My mustang is 2010 v6, i changed new tires and wheels in November last year, and after that i did not drive it on highway. the wheels changed from 17 to 18.
But yesterday when i was driving on highway i found it was vibrating, vibration was obvious when the speed is beyond 80 mph, less when between 60 and 80 mph.
What should I do to solve this?
Thank you!

Sounds like maybe they didn't balance your rims right.

the whole car. I think front may be more serious than rear. Actually we took a video of vibration, but it is hard too see because my friend said he was also vibrating with the car••••(≧∇≦)

Tell them to do a high speed road balance. It's different from the regular balance they do.

Mine did the same thing. I work at Lithia Ford. All you need to do is have your wheels balanced and that will fix the issue.

Are you running Aftermarket wheels now? If so you might need to take the Rotor retainer clip off the stud allowing the wheel to seat correctly.

I have done the wheel balance. actually the vibration still exist•••although much less. When it reach 60mph.do you think I should remove the rotor clips?

X2.

If the second balance does not do the trick, then have the tires checked for "out of round", or if there's a belt inside the tire that has seperated. Both of these can cause vibration. Your Mustang appears to be fairly new, so I doubt you have any worn suspension parts, unless you did any modification to it after the tire install, or perhaps hit a curb or drove off the road doing possible suspension damage.

If the tires are indeed out of round or an inner belt has seperated, I'd insist on that tire being replaced. An out of round tire (rare) can be corrected by shaving tread to make it round. Yep, you loose tread. A tire that has a seperated belt cannot be repaired. It will need to be replaced. If you think the tire shop is giving you the run around, take it to a "neutral" tire store. If they find the tire to be faulty, take this paperwork back to the original store and politly insist on the tire being replaced.

Exactly! I also got this solution online.
But may I simply remove the rotor clips? No new clips required?

Thanks for your patient suggestions!
I did not care about tires before because I bought them from AM. I think they should have good quality.
Actually I am not familiar with tires and suspensions, I only changed new tires.
Your opinion is helpful, give me another possibility of this vibration, I will check carefully since tires are important.

One thing you can do, and it's free (your labor) or maybe your tire store does this as part of the sale to you...Rotate the front tires to the back, and the back tires to the front. This is possible if all four tires are the same size. Normally there's a "pattern" to rotating tires as described in your owners manual. But for this test, move the fronts to the rear, and the rears to the front. See if the vibration went away, or if the vibration moved to the rear. This may help pinpoint which tire(s) are the culprit.

If there is no change, then the tires appear to be good, and the vibration is coming from somewhere else. A trip to a good suspension shop would be my next choice if the rotor retainer clip is also not the solution.

A friend of mine told me those clips are put on there at the assembly line so they don't fall off moving down the conveyor belt at the factory. Makes sense to me.

Not needed, the wheels are holding the rotors on now.

One other thing... no mention of the rims used. If they're cheaper aftermarket, not really intended for the mustang, it might need hub centric rings. Seen that happen on various vehicles.

Tire pressure. If they are over inflated it could cause a vibration. Set the psi to what the door tag says.
