If disk brakes the rotor could be worn and either needs replaced or turned.(put on a lathe to put it back in true again)Other possibilities are worn wheel bearings or worn ball joints. Best to have a shop look at it to determine the actual cause. My car does this when there is a tire out of round.

Why is it that when you turn the steering wheel it presses the brakes?

Does it actually engage the brakes, or just the brake lights? There should be no possible way for the steering wheel to actuate the braking system, but a short in the wiring somewhere in the steering column could be causing both rear signal lights or brake lights to come on.

What does it mean when power steering fluid is leaking on tire rim?

Chances are, if it's a passenger car or minivan, you have "rack and pinion steering". And if that's the case it means your rack is leaking badly. Get it replaced or it could become dangerous to your braking, and you could lose all steering.

Shaking when braking at faster speeds in a Pontiac G6?

If you're feeling a shaking/shuddering through the steering wheel when braking, this could mean you have warped rotors or uneven wear in your brake pads. Check them. It could also signify an unbalance in your tires. If you're feeling a change in the braking, like locking up or a skidding, this could mean something is wrong with your ABS (if your model has ABS).
