    Looks like the brake rotors are warped. Get them checked and resurfaced or replaced them if necessary.

    Your rotors have brake material built on them which causes the caliper to pulse and that makes your steering wheel shake. Your Volvo's rotor are not serviceable meaning they can't be machined but can easily be replaced. Your brake job is only $400ish.
