Steering vibration at around 50

Slight shimmy, not deathwobble. This arose after a tire rotation but after a couple hundred miles itís still here. Iím guessing itís tire related but Iím not sure what to do about this. Alignment didnít help.

Yep, tire related. They need to be re-balanced.

Balance or out of round. I had some that were all out. When they spun them up for balancing, you could see the bulging side as it spun. Less than half an inch, but enough to be noticible over 80kph, & shake the wheel a little once I got over 100kph.
