Re: Vibration and Resonance - Where from?

You could try jacking up each front wheel one side at a time and puting the car in gear and let the clucth out gently until the well spins and listen closely - this may help yopu determine whether its a front or rear wheel problem.

Do ensure the car is well secured on a suitable prop when doing this test.

Are the wheels alloys or steel - could one be buckled or such?

Oddly enough my wife suffers from similar problems to your wife due to tinnitus although for some reason it hasn't affected her ability to become an excellent back-seat driver.
