Vibrations are usually caused by an imbalance of a spinning part. Tires, wheels, CV joints/axles, or large engine components can either be damaged and become "out-of-round", or in the case of tires, the steel belts can shift inside of the tire, causing vibration that can be felt through the steering wheel. In general, start with the tires, eliminating problems along the way, and work toward the inside of the car. Have your tires balanced, and get an alignment check. That should take care of the problem (and should be done on aregular basis anyway). It is important to take care of the vibration right away, even if you can "live with it". Out of balance equipment like that can cause other damage within the car, and can make the vehicle unsafe to drive.
