1. jack up car
2. remove a front tire (i start with driver's side)
3. replace with spare tire
4. unjack car and drive around the block. let go of steering wheel to see if it pulls in any direction.
repeat for the other tire if the shimmy and pulling to one side is still present. unfortunately, you will need to dish out for another tire unless you still have receipts

Replaced all 4 with locally bought Yokohama Avid TRZs in the stock size, and paid a premium for them compared to $58 or so each from the Tire Rack. About 6k miles later I would still highly recommend this tire. The ride instantly went from a log wagon to a Lincoln Towncar!
