Rumble at 60-65mph

I'm getting a vibration from only the front passenger tire when I reach 60-65 mph. I literally do not feel the same issue above 65 or below 60. In fact the car rides beautifully at those speeds.

I did have the tires balanced and the problem persists. I looked at my struts and the rubber at the underside, before it enters the engine bay, shows some signs of cracking. The control arms bushings looked fine.

Any suggestions? Thanks
