The steering wheel on your 2002 Celica rattles when you go 80 mph - you have had the wheels balanced - why is this happening?

In addition to those answers already posted. I would suggest you have your mechanic check for loose or worn ball joints and tie rod ends, or the steering idler arm if your car has one. Loose or missing lug nuts or studs, badly warped brake rotors, and a disconnected sway bar link are also possible causes. I had this same thing happen to me. I finally had to buy new tires and the problem was solved immediately. I'm not sure if you have a GT or a GTS. If you have a GTS, you're probably on a soft compound high performance tire. It's recommended that you rotate these tires every 5,000 miles. If you don't they will go out of round. The problem is - if you don't religiuosly rotate them at 5K, the back tires develop a flat spot. Then when you do rotate them, you get the flat spotted tires on the front and your problem is pronounced. I learned this the hard way. My GTS started shaking at higher speeds and the only resolve was a new set of skins.
