Under car now

Been getting a really bad vibration in the steering and floor. I'm under the car right now, what do I need to look for

Try shaking the tire and see if it moves easily. Wheel bearings might be bad.

Changed them a while back. Actually made a video and how-to on here and CSS, found the problem though. Really bad tire wear on the front, in the center. Getting coilovers in the coming weeks so ill worry about it then. Also driving to Pennsylvania to get newer snow tires and rims from BBrewbaker, so coilovers, New tires and an alignment and it should be all good

It could be a unbalanced tire. Like if a wheel weight fell off. That would do it. Does it happen at a certain speed or any speed?
