when i am going around 70 or 75 on the freeway my steering wheel shakes kinda bad. Im pretty sure that i just need to get my wheels balanced and my front end aligned but i just want to be sure that will do it.

does the shaking last for 7 seconds or so and then transfer to the back?

sounds like a wheel balance problem to me or possible bent rim, do you hear any odd tire noise since you had this problem, if so it may be alignment and your getting tire drag

sounds like either a bent rim or possibly a damaged sidewall, have the alignment checked, and if they say its fine, have them look at your wheels and sidewalls, last thing you need is a tire to blow out on the freeway.

Rotate tires before you get carried away, if the vibration goes away it's the tires/wheels.
I agree. Good advise.
