something like that was happening to me, and it was because the i din't do any rotation to the tires and the tire's tread wasn't wearing evenly. got new tires problem solved.. so check if your ties are wearing evenly..

Did you look at the tread on the tires for any unusual wear like the pic MR305 posted? Run your hand over it and look for any odd bumps. I had a coworker complaining of shake in his front end. I had him drive by me in the parking lot at work and watched the front wheel. He had developed a weird "node" on the tire. It looked deformed. You couldn't see it very well parked, but when it was moving, the thing was wickedly warbly! LOL But his was not a subtle shake at all. His steering wheel acted like he had square wheels at very slow speeds and got progressively worse. He was very worried about it.
