Default shuddering

ok i was told i had a warped brake rotor cause when i hit the brakes at higher speeds the car shakes.thats all fine and dandy ill get it fixed when i have the extra dough.but i also noticed sometimes it shakes some when just driving.like i was doin 70 and the steering wheel was shakin.my dad was with me and i was like "whats wrong with this thing" he replied "well u could slow down a little" the speed limit was 55 or 60.but thats beside the point.ive never noticed it doing it on like big highways.just winding backroads.could it just be the rougness of the road? or is a front end alignment in my future?

Many times the tires will cause shaking because they are out-of-balance.

Brake pads sit against the rotors during normal driving, that might be the culprit, but then you'd have very heavy shuddering. Are your wheels aligned and balanced? Proper Air pressure, etc?

Better to know than not know. Then you can prioritize repairs. Worst case is not knowing a problem that can kill you (or others) on the road.
