Do the easy stuff first, yes, re-balance the tires, how many miles did you drive in a year. If over 5K, then yes. If it still shakes, then you possible have an issue with a loose suspension part. Does it shake when you hit the brakes too? If so then you might have a warped rotor.

There could be dirt/mud on the rims. Also a tire could be seperating
