Alright, so i am driving to school yesterday morning and out of the blue... i reach 60 mph and my steering wheel starts shaking like mad. Could the rotors be causing this even if I am not on the brakes? i :bh I know it is not my wheels and tires because a friend and I propped the car up and "drove 60" in his garage and the car began vibrating right around 60.........

Unless some hardcord damage has been done to the rotor (ie huge chunk knocked out or gouge in it) then no. Most likely a wheel weight came off or it just out of balance.

i'm betting unbalanced wheel on this one... its a harmonic thing, so you wont feel it till it hits the right speed...

it could happen, not saying your bad at anything, just trying to help
