Hi, so I have a 2013 Sonata gls, 5200 KM on it. I was recently experiencing an issue where at highway speeds my car would not go straight. I took to dealer, and they saw that 3/4 tires were not within the specs of alignment.

Anyway The dealer put the car in alignment however, now It seems like I have steering vibration in my steering wheel. It appears to go away when I put foot on brake but when I let go and at an speed I can feel a lot more vibration in my steering wheel now then before. It doesn't actually shake the steering wheel but its now annoying to feel when holding the wheel. I can also feel vibration in the seat as well

why might I experience this after an alignment fix?

Sounds like an unbalanced tire. The dealer might have rotated the tires and put an unbalanced one on the front.

does it vary with speed? For example, okay at 50mph but then you feel it at 60? If so, likely just a tire balance issue.

Do you copy of original align numbers and finish align numbers after they finish ?

I suspect your align was out enough it chewed up the tires.

The straightening/squaring of the wheels changed the roll direction/contact with road surface of the chewed up treads so that the tread roughness is now felt more due to change in angles from original values..

If you roll slowly do you see the steering wheel wobble, or feel it? If so then you may have a bad tire or bent wheel. If they rotated tires during the alignment process it may have moved to a front wheel and now it is noticeable.

The steering wheel never actually shakes, meaning I dont see it shake or vibrate, its only when i hold the steering wheel i can feel vibrations

Could be rear tire out if balance issue. Fronts you feel in steering wheel - rears you feel in the seat of your pants.
