Two typical reasons: 1. The tires are out balance. 2. The brake rotors are warped. Both of these scenarios assume the vibration is while driving. If you're referring to your car vibrating while parked then you could need a tune up as one or more cylinders in the engine are not firing properly. There are other possible issues however and you should have someone who knows about cars take a look as certain issues can be dangerous if not taken care of.
