Arrow Another Steering Wheel Shimmy Question

I am currently running powdercoated OE 19" wheels and Yokohama ADVAN Sport tires, 245/35 fronts and 275/35 rears. My wheels and tires are road force balanced using Hunter 9700.

I noticed today that on the highway, between 70-80 mph, the steering wheel sometimes shimmies quite a bit, but at other times it is completely fine. And the quality of the road seems to be the same... What could be the problem? Or is it just the road?

(I am hoping that it is the road, but I've never felt shimmy of such magnitude on the highway when I had other wheels and tires back in NY)
