Would anyone know what the reason is for the steering wheel to shake at freeway speeds of 65 and up (NOT breaking, just cruising).
I was definite it was the tires, and after installation of 2 new front, it did NOT go away
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
(Mileage is 149,000 miles)

Check to make sure that the wheel nuts are tight, if noisy, you could have a faulty bearing. I have a shake in my tires right now, and I'm leaning toward some worn out suspension components. A good way to find out if you have some worn components is to jack up the front, and give the wheels a tug, side to side, and up and down. If you have some side to side movement, worn out tie rod ends, up and down, ball joints most likely.

Try rotating the tires front-to-back. If the vibration remains, the problem is likely in the suspension.

Another point about the lug nuts: they should be tightened by hand using a torque wrench. A shop using an air gun is unacceptable. It can distort the wheel or the hub.

This van is very sensitive to accurate wheel balance. Try having the wheels rebalanced at a different shop. Equipment and skill vary widely. A racing shop may be a good bet as their customers are generally very demanding of their cars' performance.

02, Must have lot's of miles? IMHO. Shaking at high speeds. Safety issue? If it were me, might be time to see your "trusted" mechanic. Good luck.
