minor shaking in the steering wheel

new car. slight shaking around 40-50 mph. Could tires be off-balance on a brand new car? Anyone has had the same issue?

how did you get them to replace the car (as opposed to try to repair it?) isn't it yours the minute you drive off the lot?

service thinks they can fix it; dropping off tomorrow.

Florida lemon law says it is a lemon if problem persists after 3 service attempts.
