: This is why I don't post more often!
: At around 55-70 mph, I repeatedly applied
: moderate to hard pressure on the brakes,
: and the steering wheel would vibrate in my hands
: from about the 60-40 mph range, I'm not sure
: exactly because I was watching out for traffic.
: At lower speeds with varying brake pressure, this
: did not occur.

A wheel is not balanced, I would check them all first. If it was a warped rotor you would get more of the vibration at light to moderate braking then at heavy to moderate braking. But it does not hurt to check your brakes either. Good Luck.
