Question Steering wheel shaking sometimes

Hi all

2006 tacoma pre-runner double cab not 4 wheel drive.
Just had my tires replaced and alignment done. Now the steering wheel shakes sometimes. at different speeds. sometimes going between 30 and 50 miles and sometimes just a few seconds after taking off. most of the time is a settle shake but specially today was harder. it does it for a few seconds. maybe 10 seconds and it stops. once it happens on the drive I'm doing at the time, it usually doesn't happen again until next time I take off for another drive. that doesn't include stops or stop lights.
I replaced the shocks all around last year with same type shocks but Bilstein brand.
The truck is not raised and the the tire size is 275/45/20

I'm taking it back to the shop tomorrow but I wanted to see what you guys or ladies think.

Any ideas ?


Thanks

Tires just need balancing. Should all be good afterwards!

Have the same exact problem. Replaced tires, got allignment, no change. I think its just balancing, which they were supposed to do when I got the tires on. Payed for it, apparently they forgot. Good thing I still have the invoice
