Pretty much what the title says, when i hit 100mph my steering wheel starts shaking quite a bit in 4th and 5th gear. anyone know what could be the cause? Also, I have a '98 A4 1.8T Quattro. Thanks in advance

Bent/cracked rim/s tend to cause vibrations at high speeds.

Tires may need to be balanced

You probably should not go 100mph again until you fix whatever is wrong. Adding to what has already been stated: bad tires, cupped tires, low air in tires, bent wheel, ect.

Thanks for the help guys. At least those are all relatively easy fixes
