Welcome to the club :)
The car doesn't have rear struts. Are you thinking of something else?
At what speeds do you get the vibration?

I was thinking along the lines of uneven wear like the good years when they wear
I'm due new shortly hopefully rules it out would it not show up when balancing is being done?
Personally (and I'm not being snobby or picky) but when it comes to these cars you needs good premium tyre not only for grip but wear and low road noise where possible
Sounds about right they seem to like expensive stuff its never ending

In theory if one side has worn more than the other you could balance out the weight difference but I doubt it would make much difference to the feel of driving on a wheel that's not entirely circle- or slightly buckled is the same logic.

Moving wheels around would be a good start to rule all that sort of stuff out. There's not actually that much at the back end of our cars so shouldn't be too hard to track down

What are the fronts like you could swap front to rear see if it helps
Tried swapping doesn't feel any better same tyres all round

I think il replace tyres I have tried front to back but doesn't seem to make any difference and I've no play in wheel bearings either
