Default Front end shake/vibration

Newbie here, I have a ezgo pcs ( the one with tow switch) it's lifted, 20" tires I believe they are 10" wide on 12" wheels.

It has a speed chip, and at top speed and in when taking corners "fast" the front tires shake / vibrate.

What's causing this and how do I fix it?

YEah, Do all the usual. jack it up and look for looseness in the steering and suspension. spin the wheels and look for obvious imbalance or bent wheels. Check tire pressure and check to see that both front tires are the same brand and age......... any imbalance will cause a problem which may show up at (relative) high speed.

I don't know anything about suspension, but wouldn't hurt to check toe-in adjustment.

Does it act the same regardless of which direction you're cornering?
