^^^ this. Rotate front to back, and see if it changes. Get the wheels balanced, and make sure that the shop uses a Hunter Road Force machine. Ask which one of their staff is the best at road balancing, and don't let anyone else do it. All my Miata's whether road or track versions, are famous for a 65 mph "shimmy" if they are not road balanced. I've been amazed at some of the tires I thought were fine, until they were spun up on a Hunter machine, only to see how bad the rubber was... seperated cords, heavy spots, you name it. It costs more than a regular balancing, but a hunter Road force balancing is worth every penny
