With being able to speed out of it...have your tires CORRECTLY balanced. A good shop can road force balance them correctly. But sadly also most tire monkeys don't know how to or care to do it correctly.

Check the torque on your lugs. 95-105ftlbs. Will make you shake at the wheel pretty bad if they aren't right. Balance is important too, but torque you can check at home in 2 minutes. Also, could be wheel out of round, bad tire/tires...
