Probably bent rims, and at a certain speed everything goes in sync and the wobble gets worse.

they are bias ply tires and they are to big to balance
a dual steering stablizer should help
also check your ball joint and tierod ends and wheel bearings, make sure it's all tight

there NOT too big to balance. bring them to the tires shop and tell them you want them powder balanced. my truck did the same thing and i got mine done and theres no wobble at all anymore

Hey Brandon trust me Just get them powder balanced or if your too broke just put 1 1/2 cups of plumbers antifreeze in each tire and take all the wheel weights off should fix your problem 
Twenty years in the tire business i've seen the same thing many times
also you probably have at least one rim that is bent go get them checked

what do you mean by powder balance
12-12-2005, 06:09 PM
a powder is put inside the tire, and as you pick up speed, it works its way around the tire, evening out the weight.
i had something funny to write here but a crackhead stole it.
