Default Front End Shaking

Right before this happened I thought that my tire may have a bubble in it because it use to shake on the right side mostly while just driving at any mph, but this wasn't the case. When I hit 40 to 45 mph or more, the front end of my car shakes. If I try to go any faster the car still shakes, its shakes the most at 40 to 45 mph. I even tried driving in overdrive, but it still does the same thing. Anyone experienced this or know what it is?

22'* on the bonnie eh? yea id look at the hub bearing being the culprit, you should be able to hear the wheel rotating when driving. jack up the right hand side and see if you can move the wheel with your hands if it has alot of play id get that bearing replaced a.*.a.p youdont want it to go out on you trust me.

Sorry if I didn't say, but I had the 22'* off for a while now because the gray didn't match up with the interior. I haven't really drove on them neitherI never got around to making it darker. It'* like after I hit that 3rd shift point and the rpm drop below or at 2 , it starts to shake. I will check that out though, thanks

this may be the dreaded ignition shake. go 40 -45 in 3rd gear and see if it shakes. a common symptom of bad plug and/or wires is 45, overdrive and engine shaking. does it do it also going up hills in overdrive? When the engine is "lugging" is when you will notice it. (low rpms but needing power)

I hope it'* just a spark plug because I don't have $45 to dish out on new wires, I just spent all my money for my son'* first B-day. I'm tired of driving at 40 mph. Thanks for the help.
