Had all new tires put on, front in alignment, tires balanced and rotated three times, right front CV joint new put in. Still having same issue. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    A vibration in that narrow speed range strongly suggests tire balance or wheel balance, especially if there was no vibration prior to installation of the new tires.

    If your tires are not a well-known brand, they could just be plain defective internally.

    wheel bearing perhaps

    Hmmm....I think the tight window of vibration he mentioned would leave bearings out---of course, no harm in looking.

    Normally I agree completely, however my experience with bad front wheel bearing in my HHR lead me to suggest. In my case it was taking turns at 30 or so, other times quiet, and it was more of a vibration sound then actual feeling . Strange one ( at least to me)

    Oh well that makes sense. I was under the impression that the person posting the question was actually feeling vibration in the steering wheel---but maybe not.
