Steering vibration

Hi...was wondefing if anyone is facing the same problem as I am. I have stock tires and its clocked about 51000 kms. I've had problems with the steering wheel vibrating between 80-100 kmph. Anyone have a clue why this would happen. i have even changed the steering damper twice and the problem is fixed but it springs back up again in a while. Tires have worn out but this problem has been happening since 25000 kms or baffled and the dealer here is not giving a proper explanation.

The wheels could be unbalanced.

Could be a broken belt in a tire as well that will not show up on a balancer and only at certain speeds. Usually, the steering dampener is a band aid, not a fix...

could be the wheel bearing. get the wheels off the ground, grab around the tire and try to shake wheel. if it moves at all then the bearing is shot. try this on all four wheels and try to find the one that shakes. just my geuss hope it helps
