If you have a vibration problem or your steering wheel shakes at highway speeds, take your vehicle to a tire dealer or repair shop so they can check the balance of your tires. They should also inspect the steering and suspension for any other problems that might be causing a vibration or shake.

If the problem turns out to be the tires, rebalancing them should eliminate the vibration. If it does not, the problem could be wheel/tire runout or one of the other problems already mentioned.
