Default Swift vibrations

Folks, I drive a swift vxi with automech FFE and knn filter. For the past sometime I feel strong viberations around the pedal and floor area. I got the oil changed to Mobil 1 and added a fuel injection cleaner this time expecting a smoother operation. The engine sounds better however today I noticed the viberations are when the car is driven at 80Km/hr to about 90 and almost no viberations at 100 and above. Its been a while since i got the wheel alignment and balancing done, would that be responsible!
Please sugget.

Sounds like wheel balancing issue, since its happening at a particular speed. Do you feel vibration on the steering wheel also?

Do you have alloys or steel wheels?

I have regular steel wheels. Yesterday I noticed the vibrations are in addition to a noise (didnt notice it earlier as my FFE is pretty loud). When the steering is at the centre the noise and vibrations are constant while right steer increases both and a left steer eliminates the vibration and noise. I guess some thing is touching the front wheels. Does that make sense!
The vibrations on the steering are either not very prominent or completely absent.

Could be coz the of the freeflow also. There is a anti vibration mesh in the stock exhaust system. when you change the headers and piping that mesh is also taken out thats why the vibrations increase.

For the noise, if that's from your tyres, get your bearings checked
