It feels like unbalanced front wheels, when driving 120kph - 140kph

Here are the steps I took trying to resolv this :

Rebalanced weels 3 times (different garage)
Replaced Rotors 2 times
Cleaned Hub surface
Cleaned inner Mag surface

I need ideas of what could cause this.

It's the snow caught in your rims lol. When you drive in the winter about 5 lbs of snow gets caught inside your rim and turns to hard snow, almost ice sometimes. Having that extra weight in the rims unbalances them. Your only way of knowing is put the car in the warm garage and let it melt. Then take her on the highway right after goign thru ONLY clear roads. Do not go thru any snow or ice chunks at all.

If the is no snow in your wheels then they could either be bent or a tire may have a shifted belt.

Do you have aackftermarket wheels? A lot of aftermarket wheels are not hub-centric (the hole in the middle is not the same size as the hub). This will cause vibration sometimes.

I would recommend rotating your wheels front to back and seeing if it goes away.

Alignment. I noticed that you didn't mention getting an alignment. A misaligned toe can cause quite a bit of shutter in the wheels.

Wheel bearings could also be a possible explanation.

Agreed. This just happened on my Impreza and I was very annoyed after 55mph. Warmed up a bit and the steering wheel vibration is gone. :D
Could be a cheap fix...try this route first.

I would have to agree with all the answers, but I think it is probably a snow issue. We just got some last week, I went out on the high way, and my rex shook all to hell and back, it was bad, but after it warmed up, all the snow melted out of the wheels, and its good again.
