Default Steering wheel vibrates when braking at high speed

Hi, sometimes when I step on the brakes when my Camry is running at
high speed, the steering wheel vibrates. Any ideas what causes this
and how to diagnose it?

Thanks

Brake rotors out of tolerance; have them machined

Warped rotors, stopping fast 60-0 overheats them, machining will fix it
but remove more of the metal you need to prevent warping. If brakes are
worn new rotors are best, and dont stop so hard.

Do you guys know if this happens at around 35,000 kms on my 2005 Camry,
would it be covered by a manufacturer's warranty? In this case, would
they replace the rorots or machine them? I don't think this is normal
for the rotors to get warped so soon, is it? Thanks.

Regards,

Alan D.

I could get new brakes in the morning and warp the rotors by after noon.
60-0 fast stops and leaving your foot on the brake probably does it, the
rotor cools into the pad when stopped warping it Slow down easier, no
it wont be covered by warranty.
