I've had this issue for over a year now. I've had my Civic for over 3 years now, love it. About a year ago I started noticing a shake/vibration in my vehicle when I reach 45+ mph. The faster I go the more it vibrates.

Also, when I'm going slow, coming to a stop or just starting off (usually 1-15mph), the car seems to have a wobble to it.

I thought about a bent rim, cuz I hit a curb about 3 years ago, right after I bought it. But, this just started about 1 year ago. All tires are about 2 years old, bought brand new at same time. And they have great tread. Plus I keep them rotated every 6000 miles. I can't see anything wrong with the suspension, but I'm not real good at diagnosing problems. Please help

The calipers are brand new, just replaced them not long after the problem started. Had problem with the front brake system. The driver side caliper was sticking, the passenger side caliper was so loose I could push the piston in with my thumb, and my rotors were warped. So the calipers, rotors, and pads are all brand new. But I will get the tires checked and balanced and get back to you. Thank you
