steering wheel shaking at 65mph after avoiding accident

Asked by Nov 25, 2015 at 09:23 PM about the 2008 Toyota Corolla S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I noticed that my 2008 Corolla's steering wheel started shaking after I had to avoid an accident. I had to swerve and jerk out of the way very quickly and slam by breaks after an idiot cut me off and slammed his breaks to avoid hitting the person in front me. Ever since then my steering wheel shakes at 65mph or higher. This is concerning considering most my commute is highway. Any idea what it could be?

This could be a warped brake rotor,form having to slam on your brakes,or out of balance tire,have it checked as soon as you can.
