Unhappy Weird Steering Wheel Shake..

Recently I have been having a weird steering wheel shake problem. It feels just like a out of balance tire but it happens randomly. Sometimes it shakes from 30MPH towards 70MPH, sometimes it will start doing it at 50MPH.
It goes on for about 10-15 minutes and shakes really violently. After 10-15 mins it goes away like nothing happened..
This started happening a couple days after I replaced my 16" kosei k1's with the 18" v710s I got from VMR.

So last saturday I lifted the car up and replaced
~Driver side Control Arm
~Driver side Control Arm Bushing
~Driver side Inner & Outer TieRods
#Checked stabilizer link (great condition)
#Checked wheel bearing (great condition)
#Checked sway bar (great condition)
#New Yokohama tires and VMR wheels (just mounted and balanced 3 weeks ago)

I am out of options and dont know what the source of this problem could be..
However I am suspicious of the Steering Rack/Column.

If any of you guys experienced a similar problem please help me out. I am going crazy as I just spent another $300 in parts. (second time i replaced a control arm and a bushing in 10 months)

What could it be?
