HI,

Ok, this could be from either a tire that threw its wheel weight and out of balance, tire that has a separated belt in it, or a hub wheel bearing.

Because there is potential of a blowout if the issue is a separated belt, she needs to get it into a repair shop as soon as she can so that it can be inspected.

If for any reason, you can't rate my answer OKAY, GOOD, or EXCELLENT/3 STARS OR HIGHER today. Please reply and let me know why, so I can help more/better. All follow up responses are FREE, after completing the required rating
