Balance your tires. Also worn struts can do this.

+1

Any vibration that is primarily felt thru the steering wheel/column and is speed related is 99 percent tire balance/wear or suspension issue.

Mount problems show at idle car stopped. The two guys above point out things that only show at car moving.

I replaced the rear and front shocks of my dad's Ford ranger with KYB gas adjust. I did this for his birthday. He called me the next day and said the vibration he was having at interstate speeds had disappeared.
I replaced them for him due to age, but it solved problems he was having.

I once had an old MII that vibrated at 70 mph, after going crazy for a short while I discovered that the driver front frame member going up over the left front tire had cracked loose spotwelds joining it to fenderwell and other unibody there. A rivet job for about 2 1/2 foot long and problem was gone forever. The firewall vibrated quite badly around the brake pedal.
