    Typically, this is an indication that you need to have the tires balanced. But, it could be a bent rim or even another suspension component causing the vibration. Even other driveline components can cause vibration.

    Start with a good tire balancing. Try to find a place that uses Hunter equipment, like the GSP9700, or road-force balancing.

    Could be the tires, could be a bent rim. It could also be a bad CV axle, or wheel bearing. Some other steering component could also be causing the problem. But it could be something cheap like a tire is out of balance or have ice or mud stuck on one side of the rim causing the tire to be out of balance.
