I am having a similar issues.

At the moment I am suspecting it is my wheel balance but I have to wait to get them balanced. In town below 80 km/h it is fine. At 90km/h-130km/h there is vibration in the wheel and you feel it in the vehicle. Above that I don't feel it.

I would like to suggest getting the tires balanced again on a different machine. I don't know for sure if it will resolve the issue.

How much do the weights weigh? If one or more wheels are above 2.5g, rotate the tire so the heavy spot is more than 45 degrees away from where it was before and balance it again.
