That may be an alignment problem. Or check your rotors for grooves. If they are grooved it will make them pull and jerk. If you have not had an alignment in a while the toe in adjustment may be out of spec and need adjustment. The extra engine load helps to keeep the car stable, but it will wear brakes and tires fast.
