At speeds of 65mph+ I get a vibration in the stearing wheel. Does anyone know what would cause this? The tires are balanced, tierods are replaced and it has new rotors. So what is left that would be causing this?

Wheel bearing

or the possibility that it may not have been balanced correctly

Sounds like a road force variation issue with the tires.

Basically its like there's a spot in the tire that's harder than the rest. Kind of like a lump but the tire will be visibly okay.

I've also had bad shocks cause something similar.

Its funny cause I am having the same problem. But I have road force balanced wheels and tires, new tie rod ends, H&Rs but fully aligned with a perfectly straight steering wheel, new GR-2s etc. I just can't figure out what the issue would be. I mean it looks in top shape but it has had a hard life with lots of twisting and bending from autoX, roundabouts etc. But man, when I get going up to the higher speeds on the highway, she just quivers like a tire is bad. The reason I did road force was to not have this problem.

I would check the bearings or double check that the tires are balanced right.

also, try rotating tires, to see if the vibration moves/changes

and all of the above ideas are a good places to check

So far all I have done is got new tie rods, got an alignment and got the tires balanced both of those things made no difference at all. Had anyone found a solution to this problem?

check the inner tie rods in the rack or loose rack... but they should of found that out when they should of been doing a check on all of the parts before the alignment if they were doing there job right.

Basically, there are 3 possibilities:

1. Alignment of your car - especially front end.
2. Wheel bearing
3. Tie rod went bad - even you just replaced them doesn't mean they can not go bad, especially if you hit a hole on the road, it can jerk the tie rod and destroy it.
