I have a vibration at 70 miles per hour


if the wheel alignment is faulty ( castor wobble ) at 70 mph there is no way that you can describe it as a vibration as it virtually rip the steering wheel out of your hands. If it is a torque converter problem then at around 3850-4025 rpm stationary there will be a vibration of the vehicle and engine The sort of vibration that you are experiencing at 70 mph will come from a drive line problem. If rear wheel drive then it could be faulty "U" joints, worn slip joint or failed rear engine mount
If front wheel drive it may be cv joints or bent drive shafts,wheel bearings or brake callipers not moving freely on the mounting bolts.

Vibration bad thirty miles per hour plus


Start by getting your tires balanced and the underside of your car inspected. Ask the technician to look at your brake rotors while the wheels are off. Deformed rotors can cause vibration, felt especially in the steering.
I wouldn't drive the vehicle unless absolutely necessary until the issue is checked. A severe vibration could lead to catostrophic failure of parts, which in turn could lead to a wreck.

When excelerate to 70 mph my steering wheel vibrates. What should I do?


This is very common. It can either be your tires need to be balanced. Or your car needs to be aligned at an alignment center. One or the other should stop the vibration.

Steering wheel vibrations


It could be worn starting parts, Not ballanced wheel, and broken or worn struts. Start with the wheel getting ballance and go from there if there was no problems before your got the new tires put on.
