Steering Wheel Vibration

Like many others I have been fighting a front end vibration since I purchased my Seville. Right now I do not have new tires but they are properly balanced. The vibration is there with both my summer and winter rims/tires. I usually do the Road Force when I get them balanced. I noticed the other day that I really feel the vibration through the steering wheel; it is constant when traveling above 50 mph.

This past week I replaced the swaybar, tie rods, and the front left wheel bearing. I didn't replace the right bearing as my mechanic didn't notice a problem with it. Any ideas what it could be?

Thanks for the replies. I'm a little suspect of it not having a lot to do with the tires. The problem was there on my brand new winter tires (which are on different rims). It is really bad right at the 65 mark and goes away a bit at 70. I can't see how a dirty surface would cause this terrible rattle.
Thanks for the input, it is worth a shot. So you just use a wirebrush to clean the surfaces? Thats it? Does the dirty surface just make parts that should be moving smoothly "catch", causing the vibration?
