The only counter weights you have are on the wheel rims. Maybe you have a bushing or a stamped part of some sort. (a pic would really help) Tie rods would be the leading cause of an off-center steering wheel, maybe your car took a good whack an is out of alignment.

If the steering wheel was straight before this happened you may have a serious issue with something in the front suspension or steering linkage. Get it to a mechanic immediately.
