A vibration at above 40 miles per hour sounds like a bad tire or a tire balance issue. Most automotive repair facilities will check your front tires for no charge at all. It only takes a few minutes and it's not complicated. They can visually inspect the tires and verify that nothing is falling apart causing a safety concern.
Best of luck and call around a few local shops, ask to have your tires checked for vibration. Chances are you will find someone willing to help for no charge.
