What might cause underfoot vibrations while driving?

I have a 2012 3.0-litre diesel Audi Q5 and have noticed a strong vibration under my feet starting at 60mph. It stays, and arguably gets worse, the faster I go. It’s not really through the steering wheel so I discounted wheel bearings. Do you have you any ideas? Many thanks.

Could be an issue with one of the tyres. Or something more serious (and expensive) caused by a driveshaft problem.
