Slight steering wheel vibration goes away after 2-3 minutes

2018 4Runner SR5 @ 48k miles.

I have a slight steering wheel vibration when I first start and drive the car in the morning and after I drive it for a few minutes, it completely goes away.

Any idea what can cause this ?

I had the wheel bearings checked, everything checked out ok.

Thanks.

Your tires are developing flat spots from sitting. It's normal. Once the tires warm up the flat spots go away.

It sounds like the tires are flat-spotting while sitting. Usually it's just temporary, and will go away as the tire casing warms up, and becomes more flexible when you start driving. This tends to be more noticeable on tires with Nylon plies.
