    If you rotate the tires does it change?Maybe you have a bad tire. Look for bubbles in the tire or a ply seperation. If you spin it and it looks like it's deformed it's probably your problem.

    Front end, rear end ??? Can you describe the shake a little more?
    If you think it's coming from the front you might want to check your ball joints and steering stabilizer.
    Be more specific and you might get more specific answers /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
