Rotors warped for sure. Make sure that the next time your wheels are installed, they are tightened to 85lbft in a criss-cross pattern with a torque wrench, and not an air gun. Over/unequal tightened lugs are the #1 reason why rotors warp.
You can either get your rotors turned, or you can step up to new rotors depending on your budget. Check these out:

OK got about 22K miles on my '06 hatch... I have noticed when a apply even light pressure to say slow on the freeway I get heavy steering wheel shake. Anyone else expereince? Any ideas on the cause?
Sometimes drivers shake the steering wheel because they are listening to an up beat melody on the radio.
i happen to have the same situation... i have a new rear rotors and EBC brake pads. and i have stock in the front. its already 50k and i haven't replaced the fronts... and my car is shaking at 70mph when i'm lightly braking do you have reason to believe its my front or my rear brakes? i will post pics please help me out if the front or the rear is gone.
Just an update. I took mine into the dealer this week for an oil change and mentioned to the service advisor about this issue. He said he would have the tech look at it. Long story short, they ordered me new front rotors under warranty. Appearently they have been "warped from heat." Just figured i'd tell you all.
i've been having the same problem..i was thinking balance..but it is pretty much when i brake to slow down. most of the time the ride is pretty smooth. i'll have to go get that checked to see whats up. ill go ask my auto instructor maybe he could help me out.
