Wow that sucks, I will guess that it is not the wheels or tires, I am going to assume your steering wheel is not jerking in a way that it goes right or left in your hands, that normally is in the tires. that leaves up and down or in or out vibrations. Years ago I drove a new 2008 Ford Exploder with under 2000 miles, I got this violent vibration in the steering wheel and took into Ford for warrenty service, they found nothing wrong, I drove it for a week with same issue, at the speed of 54 mph it shook. I took it into Ford 3 more times and was handed papers it was new and perfect. The service manager advised this Ford was running perfectly and gave me copies of the motor diagnostics.
I ended up asking the Dealership manager to take a ride with me since he too stated it ran perfectly. I intentionally took him to the longest hill I knew in the area and hit the 54mph and with the throttle dialed in this new perfect Ford. I got the wheel jerking 1 plus inch forward/back or up down not sure it was like a jack hammer, the manager instantly went full sprawl grabbing anything he could as it was loud and rough inside the Exploder. I took the manager back to his store and advised if this is normal Fords are really and POS. Okay enough> It ended up being a broken spark plug 1 or 6 and the engine literally was trying to fire forward and backwards each time that plug came up on the firing order. I almost gernaded that new motor if the hill was a little longer. It was pretty fun while it lasted. Something with the electronic iginition and the broken plug confused the computer creating the steering vibration, it was not a bad vibration if I pushed through it or was on fairly flat roads but it was as annoying a hell. Yes at any other speed it ran well and tested perfect on there scanners.
