its good that you balanced the tire pressure but it sounds to me as if the wheels themselves maybe off balance. depending on where you bought your tires from, you may have lifetime balancing included so take them back to where you got them or a new place and get them balanced. If that doesnt solve the problem then you're going to have to look into more expensive repair options.

good luck, and i honestly think its just the tires being out of balance. And have them re-check and adjust tire pressure while they're at it.

Thanks for your recommendation. Am living in Toronto, Canada and I bought my set of tires sometime in Sep 2006 in Tampa, Florida. I took my tires to 3 different Toyota delearships in Toronto to balance my tires and still the same result (steering wheel vibration).Am just assuming that if the tires are properly balanced the rims arebasically OK.Recommended tire pressure is 30 at the front and 29 at the rear. Few months back, I was using the 4 set of winter tires and I don't have the steering wheel vibration. Am I wrong to assume that I should replace my 4 all season tires I bought from Florida? Would appreciate your comments...thanks

the wheels themselves maybe bad. You could try to see if u can get a warranty replacement from either the manufacturer or the place in FL that you got them from...
