If it was a rear wheel out of balance you wouldn't feel it through the steering so still a likely culprit. A front to rear wheel swap would give you an answer to that. The vibration could also be a propshaft universal joint starting to seize up.

If you use it off road you could get mud buildup on the inside or the wheel rim also have a look at the gearbox rear mountings I’ve had the side rubber mountings on the x member come unbounded/the diff pinion nut come loose as mentioned the propshaft centre bearing/u/j,s seizing up or balance weight falling off /play in wheel bearing.

What van/ engine is it is it a misfire of just vibrating.
