Shaking at 55 could be due to improperly balanced tires. Not all balance machines are created equal, and balance jobs aren't always done right. When I got new tires on a '01 Elantra awhile back, there was a slight shimmy at about 65 mph. I took the car right back to the tire shop and told them to re-balance the tires, and that took care of the shimmy. But the shaking when braking sounds like something else--a warped rotor for example.

As stated, shaking/vibration while in motion tends to be wheel balancing, although it can be more severe such as bad tie rods, ball joints, wheel bearings, just about any front end suspension component, but since you just got new tires and balanced, they them to rebalance, or at least explain your situation and have them recheck the balancing. Shaking upon BRAKING (not breaking) is usually related to the rotors/disc. You may have warped discs or high and low spots on it. Change the front PAIR (always in pairs) and while changing it, change the brake pads too.

You're welcome! And there's no need to apologize, I was only teasing. Almost everywhere I read, it's always misspelled as breaking

i have had this car for about three years and havent had one problem with it. recently I have had shaking coming from my front end. I have new tires, got them balanced and had the alignment done, i have changed the cvs joints, ball bearings, ball joints. i jacked the car up and put it on jack stands and took the tires off and it still has the vibration. so it has something to do with the front end but im not sure what else it could be... any suggestions????
