Default Steering wheel vibration

Hey, all. Here's my small issue.... when I'm on the freeway, there is a slight vibration in my steering wheel intermittently. It's not all the time, it's off and on. I had my wheels balanced, still happens. I thought it would be my rotors, but when I brake.... the steering wheel stops shaking. So I ruled out the rotors. I checked my ball joints, they're good. I'm at a loss. Anyone experienced this?

Have you checked tie rods? Jack up one side at a time and try to wiggle wheel with hands at 3 and 9 o'clock positions and then again at 12 and 6. Also make sure nothing is loose (lug nuts tight, etc).

Do you drive on gravel at all? I've run into this issue before and found it was just dirt that had built up on one side of the wheel due to a muddy day and that was enough to cause a pretty substantial shake. Snow can also cause this fairly often. If not, Just like MilkyWay64 said, check the tie rods. If that's not it, your tires could also potentially be the issue if any of them are damaged.
