WHY DOES MY CAR STEERING VIBRATE ON LONGER JOURNEYS

Hi, my car steering wheel starts to vibrate and I get loud road noise on journeys of approx 20mins plus, especially on the motorway. If I go for a 10min drive on the motorway I don't have a problem. I took it to a garage and they indicated that a wheel was out of shape and my suspension arm bush's needed replacing.
I accept this could cause the vibration but wouldn't it cause the vibration on any journey, how does this explain the symptoms on longer journeys?

Do you

You might have a tire that shifs a belt when it gets hot
