I would guess that is a wheel balance issue, you could have lost a balancing weight or hit a pot hole. Could also be a alignment issue or a seized brake caliper. Make sure all the wheel bolts are tight, than drive it to your nearest dealership, independent or tire/alignment shop who work on Volvos and have them check and balance your tires. You should also do a walk around after your next drive, walk around the car and hold your hand up to each wheel, to check if any wheel is hotter than the others.

I checked the bolts and they are about as tight as you can get them, one of the first things I did. Then I just went and inspected the wheels, however I am no pro at it and by the looks of it they seemed fine. If it would be an issue with brakes I would probably have noticed in by now, however I did experience in one point when braking they would make minor vibrations, but no idea if there is a reason behind it or..

When they inspected the wheel, did they put it on a wheel balancing machine? The seized brake caliper thing might sound strange, but has happened to 2 of the cars in my family's fleet and my buddies 9-3. The most severe was on my parents 2001 V70, where it started vibrating and pulling to the left on the motor way going 110Km/h, that could have burned the car to the ground or caused an accident if I hadn't convinced my mom to pull off. My V50 1.6D saw a ramped increase in fuel consumption and occasional vibrations (originally thought it was the cords in the trie, but was a front caliper. My buddies NG Saab 9-3, had a vibration issue which he couldn't find the cause of, I immedetly suggested checking the heat on each wheel and it turns out I was on to it. I'm not saying it is brake related, but I could be and with it being such an easy thing to check it would hurt.

I haven’t had the wheels inspected anywhere other than my girls father when we changed them for the season (the current ones I am using) and everything seemed fine during and after. It was a recent issue so it’s something that has happened now..

Tires are finely balanced things, one gram here or half a gram there can lead to vibrations, hit a pot hole and "bend" the wheel ever so slightly and you can start getting some vibrations. There are two types of weights used when balancing, "clamp weights" that go on the edge of the wheel and stick on weights that go inside the barrel. The stick on weight can fall of for various diffrent reasons.

Have the wheel balanced, sounds like maybe some of the weights have come off
