Little wobble at 60 mph

My new Jeep has a very slight wobble probably only notice by me as a came from a luxury car to a Jeep. Is this the first sign of the DW or is it in need of a rotation and alignment? It only happens around 60 and stops around 70 for the most part.

If it is only between certain speeds and without any sort of preceding incident (a bump) it would lead me to believe you just need a balancing/ rotation/alignment/new tires. Depending obviously on how long you've had these tires, etc.

^^^ yes. Check the torque on the lugs, loose lugs will give you a serious steering wheel shimmy, like a palsy....

x3.

One of my rims is bent and can't be balanced anymore, and I have a wobble (slightly) from 55-60. Its more of an annoyance until I buy my black rims.

Definitely have your tire balance checked.
