Steering wheel vibration comes and goes

So I have this problem it's just driving me nuts.Speeds 60-70 steering wheel is perfect at times then shakes at times when cruising.I have aftermarket wheels with hub ring and alignment just done with roadforce balance. Any suggestions?

Does it only occur under braking or just when cruising?

Do you have the right size hub rings? It's suppose to be a snug fit.

only thing I can see that is a very small gap after the hub to the end of the wheel.

Have you had your wheels rebalanced?

Tires don't wear perfectly evenly, and it sounds like it could be a balancing issue.

Can't really see any gap int he pics, but I ordered hub rings and they sent me the wrong size, just 1mm too big, and it's causing vibration.
