    Default shaking steering wheel?

    Alrighty this has just started about a month ago when Im going down a hill or when I hit a certain speed my steering wheel shakes and I don't mean a small shake I mean my arms are grabbing the steering wheel to keep control and they are violently shaking with the wheel. Now in the begining I heard that if alot of snow got packed into your tires the wheels would shake but theres no snow I check everyday before I leave and if there is I get it out. So then I think maybe it could be my tires aren't balance right but no less then 2 and 1/2 months I got new snow tires put on in a shop so they SHOULD'VE balanced them right? so that can't be the problem so then I thought alingnment! but the thing with that is if I let go of the wheel when I'm going under 50-60 miles an hour and it stays pretty damn straight then it can't be that either........so what the heck is going on here??!!??!! any help anyone?

    Rotors may be badly worn. You apply brake pressure, they get hot and the warping transmits that sensation to you.If a wheel was out of balance it would be more subtle.Have your brakes inspected.

    I would get a price from Honda first. The car's not that old, they might be able to get it for you. Or you can try your local auto recycler. Look in the Yellow Pages for several in your area and call around. It's a very common car. Any general mechanic can do the job, you could too if you wanted. The Chilton or Haynes manual will tell you how. Look at the aftermarket wheel, see if you can find a manufacturer- go to their website. There should be directions for installation that are downloadable there, just reverse them for removal.

    My steering wheel shakes at about 40mph and shakes worse when the brake pedal is applied. But their is no vibration felt in the pedal.
