Best Answer

Tires out of balance, belt in tire has slipped, ie defective tire, bent wheel, loose lug nuts, loose or worn bearings. Check lug nuts and tighten to the proper torque. Have the tires rotated and balanced. Inspect the suspension and all stering parts. Have you used "fix a flat" ? if yes, You have 2-lbs of water inside your tire now. it cost me 70 bucks to find out and this stuff easts chrom weels. Go to alignment shop and tell them to jack up ur car and they use a special machine to turn the back wheels one by one to find out which one is out of ballance ( dont let them take the wheels off and ballance them since they balance tires and speed lower than 50mph and usually stuff happens around 55 to 60mph. for front tires u can just jack up one wheel at a time and put the car in drive and accelerate one wheel is on the ground and the one you jacked up turns and u ask some one to look at the wheel see if it shakes ( it shakes really bad if water inside the tire) do the same of other front wheel. But for back wheels u need that special machine which alignment shops have and all these machines do they turn the wheel up to 130 mph to see if it shakes or not.

If it only happens when you are braking I would suspect warped brake rotors. Other reasons the front end could shake would include unbalanced tires or the vehicle needing realignment.

What causes a car to shake while driving on the freeway at 60 mph?

Usually that's caused by out of balance wheels. Take the vehicle to your tire store and have the wheels balanced.If that's not it, take it to a good suspension shop (not a tire store, I don't care what they say) and have it checked by someone who only does suspension and steering.
