wheels need balancing, sometimes shake is only evident at high speed

No,but tires out of balance will cause this. Have them balanced and rotated.

Warped rotors is the most common cause.

Bad tires and bad alignment can cause the car to shake at certain speeds.

Probably in need of a complete tune up.

You probably need to get your tires balanced. Or replaced. If the bias goes (steel belt breaks or shifts), the car will waddle at low speeds, and the steering wheel will shake at high speeds.

Check the idle, crankshaft and camshaft sensors.

A loud knocking noise in the motor of a car at high speeds is most likely the engine. There could be another issue with the transmission if the knocking only happens at high speeds.

A car shaking while applying brakes is most likely caused by worn a brake pad. Check the brake system at all four wheels to find the problem.

A car that is jerking at high speeds probably needs a tune-up. Barring any major mechanical issue, this will solve the problem.

Your car probably has abnormally worn in tires, caused by misalignment. Worn rotors can cause this as well.

If you hit it at high speeds in a car, it is likely to be the death of you.

Definately avoid driving at high speeds, and get it in to see a mechanic to see what is going on. It might be nothing, but it could be something serious.

The symptom would indicate a wheel/tire/balance problem. You need to have a professional inspect if you are driving at those speeds. also make sure if you drive at 120+ mph, you have "Z" rated tires for safety.

Its a guys car far to wide to be a girls car also not that easy to control at high speeds.

To be a racing car driver, you would need to be old enough to drive and you would need experience driving at high speeds. You would also need quick reflexes and an excellent reaction time.

if your car shakes while driving and gets worse at higher speeds usually means the tires need to be balanced and if tire damage (cupping) has already started your gonna have to replace the bad tires
