Check your tires for wear, and or a belt within the tire might have shifted. Also have the balance check on the tires. Lug nuts loose? Tighten with proper torque ratings. Then have the alignment on the car, and check for any loose suspension components. Do you rotate your tires every 5-10K miles?

The steering on my 05 shakes when idle or at Interstate speeds. GM recalled it, claimed to have fixed it, but it still goes on.
