The steering wheel shakes when I press the brake pedal.
Hi there. It sounds to me that you have warped brake rotors. This problem occurs when your brakes heat up to a point where the pressure exerted from the tightened lug nuts bend your rotors. When you press your brakes, this warpage runs between your brake pads causing your steering wheel to shake because of the out-of-roundness of the rotor. This shaking may lead to worn out steering parts because of the jittering of your wheels. Have a certified mechanic sent by YourMechanic inspect your brakes system and fix this issue for you properly.
