    This! Vibration w/o feeling it in the wheel would probably indicate back tires out of alance/flatspot. See if you can feel something different in the steering wheel after moving the back tires up.

    Not sure if the ST has the same issue, but the Miata does. It is so common there is a name for it, 65 MPH Shimmy. It even takes a special machine to get it all out as 'normal' balancing machines aren't sensitive enough to get it all out. If you see a difference call around and find a Hunter Road Force machine have your tires balance on that.
    I used to dream about the life I’m living now.
