My car had a similar problem a few months ago. I tried varying tire pressure, tire balancing, front end alignment. All to no avail.

Very strange & dangerous handling over uneven road surface. Amplified by wide tires.

Ended up changing the steering box. Original unit was worn. About $700.

Good luck.
