Question: Why does front end shake intermittently at high speeds?

The front end of my vehicle (and steering wheel) shake intermittently at 70mph+. I've had my tires balanced 3 times in 2 months. Tires are good, brakes are new, alignment is good. Any help/advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

You have a bad rim. It could be a wheel bearing or steering part. I would have the fron end inspected. If they say it's good i would rotor the tires and recheck.
