Probably wheel balance but you should have the front end checked

over to be safe.

### Is it true that if two cars collide while approaching each other at 60 mph that the impact is equivalent to one car hitting a solid steel wall at 120 mph?

No, when two cars collide while approaching each other at 60
mph, the impact would be equivalent to one car hitting a solid
steel wall at 60mph.
Newtons third law states that for every action there is an equal
and opposite reaction. When a car is traveling at 60 mph and hits a
solid steel wall, the wall applies a force equal to 60 mph back
toward the car. This is the same as if a car that is traveling at
60 mph hits another car traveling at 60 mph. In both scenarios, the
car is traveling at 60 mph and at the point of collision a force
equal to 60 mph is imparted on the car.
