Your steering wheel will vibrate at higher speeds due to either wear in your front tires or improper balance of tire pressure. IF these are not the promblem look to see if there is damanage to the shaft under the vehicle between the tires. Look at it or get it looked at before it gets worse, believe me I know how expensive it can be later!

Why does my car steering wheel vibrate at high speed?

Vibration of the tire is caused by a uniformity parameter called "variation of radial force". Usually a vehicle's steering wheel will vibrate (called torsional nimble) at a certain speed. This vibration is caused by the harmonics of this radial force. Picture the side view of a tire with different size springs within it. The force of these springs cause a distortion of this force and you feel this distortion in the steering wheel.

What is speed sensitive power steering?

When the car is driven at low speed, the power steering gives full assist so the driver can turn the steering wheel easily. Parking or turning tight corners can be done with little effort. As vehicle speed increases, the mount of power steering assist is reduced and the steering wheel becomes harder to turn. This gives the driver more feedback about road conditions through the steering wheel and better vehicle control. If an emergency arises and the driver needs to turn the steering wheel quickly, the full power assist is provided almost immediately after the wheel is turned only a few degrees.
