Default car feels like it's shaking at high speeds, any thoughts?

could the tire pressure being low on one tire do this?

any other thoughts would be helpful.

Default could it be the wheel balance?

Default what suspension do you have....

when my car had the non-sport susp., it felt awful at speed on the highway. On windy days, the car would get blown all over the road, and when I'd drive by big trucks I'd need both hands on the wheel. All of this went away when I got new susp.

Default I would get your tires balanced. Mine runs smooth as silk at any speed.

Default I'd say tire pressure and/or balancing, I have no problems with mine at those speeds (sport susp.)

Default If it's around 75 mph, and you can feel it in the steering wheel, I'm guessing it's wheel balance.
