In many cases the issue is with an out of balance tire, you can have them all balanced fairly cheaply and a rotation is probably in order, I believe it's all in the same price, after that the alignment could be the cause, if the wheels are not straight forward they will shake, and newer cars need 4 wheel alignment, after that it could be your engine timing or a bad engine support.,

It could be your bushings.

You probably need to get your tires balanced. Or replaced. If the bias goes (steel belt breaks or shifts), the car will waddle at low speeds, and the steering wheel will shake at high speeds.

My 92 PA had a similar problem. At low engine speeds it would shake pretty bad. It turned out to be the harmonic balancer. You can easily check this by looking at the front end of the engine. It is the pulley that drives all the belts. If the rubber has deteriorated, it could be the cause of your problem.
