Yep! It'* time to balance the wheels(at least the front tires). You also might check how the front tires are wearing at this time. It might be time for an alignment as well

that could be true but it did it again on the way home in the exact same place on the road. and the road is kinda one big patch.so im thinkin its the road.if/when i take it out on the highway and it does the same thing ill look further into that. but it only did it on that one little stretch of road.

i still think it was just that patch of road. cause right after we put the new rotors on we took it for a test run and took it up to 70+ and it didnt vibrate at all. i need further testing.

I have a road like that by my house, the road looks smooth but it makes a nasty vibration in the car.

So if you think it'* the road, then why'd you ask us what it is?
