Hello. Most of the time when you get a vibration at a higher speed such as this it is caused by a balance issue. The tire balance can be off or one of the tires may be slightly out of round. This is not a hub cap issue. If the hub cap is bent then it will not cause this to occur. If the alignment was not done correctly then that can cause this also so I would recommend having that rechecked also. It can also be caused by a wheel hub that has corrosion on it or one that is out of round. If there is corrosion on it then the wheel may not be seated correctly. If you want to have this vibration checked out, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose why there is a vibration in the rear of your car.
