if your steering wheel shakes at higher speeds, you just need to have your tires aligned. same thing just happen to my wife's car, got the tires aligned and it stopped shaking.

for the rotors..check the sticky in the buy/sell/trade section of the site

for the shaking..it could be alignment, wheels need to be blanced, or your tie rods could have gone to hell

If the steering wheel is shaking when braking, check the tierods. If you also feel it in the pedal, your wheels may have been improperly torqued, warping the rotors and causing this concern. Or the rotors could just be warped.

About how many miles have you put on in those 3 months? Also, did this just recently start happening, like within the last week?
