    Does your car shake at 50 to 65 miles an hour if so it is quite possible you need your tires balanced by a tire store. If it shakes at any speed have your tires and wheel rims inspected for damage.
    If the car shakes only on braking it may be possible that the front brake rotors need to be remachined. In any case it is not good/safe to have a car violently shake and it is safer to have your car inspected by any competent auto repair shop.
