Default Anyone experience steering wheel vibration?

I test drove a 2016 Z06 this week with 15000 km on it. The only issue I felt was a steering wheel vibration that didn't make sense to me.

It would pulse with vibration every couple of seconds. So it would be fine for a couple seconds+/-, then vibrate for a second+/-.

This happened at highway speeds and was independent of gear selection or speed. Strange.

The vibration profile stayed exactly the same from ~70 kmh to 130+ kmh. I switched gears manually and it didn't effect it.

This is nothing like what I've experienced with wheel balance issues before. Any thoughts?

My 2019 did the exact same thing; driver side front wheel bent. Replaced wheel and it drives fine.
