steering wheel shaking

When I'm driving and I get to about 55-60 MPH my steering wheel shakes side to side just slightly. That means one of the wheels is out of balance correct? I think I might have gotten some mud in one of them LOL.

more than likely a wheel is out of balance, but it could mean any number of things.....for instance, bump steer (because of the lift & larger tires), bad ball joints, etc....

check your tire balance first..

Mario Andretti reminds you..

check your tire pressures.
