If the wheels were balanced, the wheels might have a flat spot, check for out of roundness, certain tires can do this after they wear a little and the belts shift internally, are you do for new tires? The brake rotors are warped, does your steering wheel shimming a little while braking? Struts won't necessarily cause the shimming, but if they are completely shot, then they might.
