FRONT END SHIMMY @ 65+ MPH

2002 Acura RL

Shakes or Wobbles problem
2002 Acura RL Front Wheel Drive Automatic 78000 miles

Have a 2002 Acura RL 3.5 w/78K miles. Noticed a mild shimmy in the steering wheel when it approaches 60 MPH plus. Not constanrt. Stops sometimes. Bad tire? Treadwear is not very good. Rotors? Wheel / tire out-of-balance?

Thanks.

Vibration at those speeds is usually caused by a tire out of balance if you go faster and it goes away it is most certainly a tire out of balance
