Default Vibration

I just bought an'07 PT Cruiser with 103k miles on it. There is some kind of vibration in the car which varies with vehicle speed. For lack of a better description it feels like a flat spot on one of the tires. The vibration is most noticeable at low speeds 25-30 mph. Any ideas?

I won't be coming to Branson, I live in Utah. BTW I had new tires installed on the car 2 weeks ago. It did not solve the problem. If anything it became more noticeable after that.

You are another Jim Davis from the one I know. He lives a lot closer to Branson and has an inferno red Cruiser with a custom front end.

I hope you get your problem taken care of.
